John Leong



John currently co-hosts Singapore Tonight, CNA’s flagship primetime local news programme.

Prior to this, John was a senior reporter on the Singapore Desk where he often reported on-location to produce exclusive local content for all the Mediacorp news channels.

Some of the more memorable events John covered include the AirAsia Crash in 1997, the passing of Singapore’s founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew in 2015, and the Singapore General Election later that year.

In a broadcast career spanning nine years, John has reported for radio and television, including at the former regional sports cable channel, ESPN Starsports where he formerly covered the regional football beat.

John graduated from the University of Queensland, Australia with a Bachelor of Journalism in 2008.

Outside of the newsroom, football is always on the agenda for John. Rarely a Sunday goes by without him slugging it out on a football pitch with his team.
