After more than a decade, popular Sunday morning show Selamat Pagi SG (Good Morning SG) is making a comeback with fresh and new content premiering on 30 November 2014, every Sunday at 10am on MediaCorp Suria.
Selamat Pagi SG will be returning with 18 episodes, where the final episode will feature one of the segments, SG Kenangan, in a form of a public exhibition. It will be broadcasted live for an hour, covering interesting food, places and various lifestyles as well as interviews with popular personalities, to fill the weekend.
Senior Vice President of MediaCorp Malay Broadcast Division, Zakiah Halim, also expressed her excitement for this comeback, “We have received many requests from the audience to bring back their favourite morning show, Selamat Pagi Singapura, as it was fondly remembered. We hope the Malay community will enjoy the eclectic mix of segments and we look forward to them adjusting their Sunday morning routine to make Selamat Pagi SG a must-watch programme for the whole family.”
The weekly live show will be produced by award-winning production company, ScreenBox Pte. Ltd. Selamat Pagi SG will see a line-up of new hosts – Fiza O, Ariff Samsudin, Aura Shai, Sufian Ahmad and Huda Ali – together with Sujimy Mohamad, one of the original anchors of the iconic morning show.
When asked how Sujimy felt about producing and hosting the comeback show, he gushed, “I’m truly delighted when Suria commissioned Screenbox this iconic programme. However, when I’m selected to be one of the anchors again, I begin to shiver, as I know I must live up to the high expectations of the TV station and the audience. I hope the audience will like what we have prepared for the show.” Sujimy is also one of the Executive Producers of Selamat Pagi SG, together with Haslinda Ali, co-director and partner of Screenbox who will also be Head Writer and co-Executive Producer of the series.
Haslinda explained, “We are truly passionate about producing this family show to fill up the void on Sunday mornings for our local viewers. Now that we have 3 kids, all the more we’re excited to produce this family-oriented show. We want to give our best where content is top priority and presentation will be fresh and light as we want the viewers to see Selamat Pagi SG as THE show to tune in to for information on family activities, verified information amidst the myriad of information overload going around in the social media, and the latest happenings around the island. Coming from an info-ed background, I intend to skew the programme towards a value- added lifestyle cum information programme that has relevance and maturity in discussion.”
One new segment called SG Kenangan will be introduced where old items from the past 50 years are gathered to tell the Singapore story. This is in conjunction with the ongoing SG50 campaign and also to expand the creativity and outreach for both young and old viewers.
