After his successful concert at the Kallang Theatre last July, Alden Richards will return to Singapore to host the 21st Asian Television Awards.
The awarding ceremony will take place at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Center on December 2, 2016.
Alden will be joining Adrian Pang, Stephanie Carrington and Baki Zainal to host Asian TV industry’s most significant and celebrated event which recognizes excellence in programming, production and performance.
The GMA-7 actor is best known as one half of the phenomenal AlDub loveteam with Maine Mendoza from the longest-running Philippine noontime show Eat Bulaga!
“It is truly an honor to be hosting this year’s Asian Television Awards and celebrate the best television content that Asia has to offer,” Alden was quoted as saying regarding this development.
Headlining acts for this year’s awards include multiple Golden Melody Awards winner JJ Lin, international pop phenomenon Charli XCX, and a mystery K-Pop band.
