IN 25TH ASIAN TELEVISION AWARDS
JAKARTA – The flagship program of Indonesia’s only 24-hour English-language TV channel is among the best in Asia.
“Hot Indonesia” is one of six finalists for “Best Talk Show” in the 25th Asian Television Awards (ATA), to be held January 15-17, 2021, in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
The program airs weekly on The Indonesia Channel (TIC) with co-hosts Dalton Tanonaka, Sandrina Malakiano and Sandiaga Uno. They tackle topical issues ranging from religious freedom to pandemic problems to fast-food trends.
“They don’t shy away from any subject,” says TIC General Manager Arci Fadillah. “And that’s why the show is such an important source in and out of the country.”
Tanonaka is a former CNN International and CNBC Asia anchor, having won a previous “Best News Anchor” ATA honor in 1997. Malakiano is deputy CEO of a political marketing company, and Uno is a former vice governor of Jakarta.
“Hot Indonesia” is competing against finalists from Singapore, India and Hong Kong. Two other Indonesian media companies - RCTI and Metro TV - were nominated in other categories.
Television Awards were launched in 1996, growing now to more than 50 categories
with 1,400 entries from India to Japan.
