Kenneth has established himself as a leading political journalist and news presenter in Hong Kong, working for the country’s most popular broadcasting company.

Covering elections, controversial political reform and international affairs, Kenneth pursued a career as a journalist because he is dedicated to having an influential role in society.

‘Every news report I have made and every interview I have conducted aims to provide the public with information and analysis on social and political issues,’ he says.

During a career break where he studied for a master’s degree in International Relations at the University of Bristol, Kenneth strengthened his theoretical foundation on political economy, which enhanced his ability to analyse politics and policies.

After graduating from the University of Bristol, Kenneth returned to Hong Kong and to launch and host his own weekly political talk show, On the Record, in which he probes politicians, academics and opinion leaders during one-on-one interviews. A pioneer in the news industry in Hong Kong, the show has become one of the most respected and popular news programmes in the country.

Kenneth attributes much of his professional success to the time he spent studying at the University of Bristol.

‘The interaction among professors and classmates has undoubtedly enhanced my capability of critical thinking and has broadened my vision, which are crucial for being a good journalist,’ he says.

‘Studying in the UK is a unique experience. I have had an opportunity to learn from and with the brightest people I have ever known. I’ve also made great friends from around the world, diving into new cultures and exploring diverse knowledge’.
