JP Ong, MONEY FM 89.3

JP Ong

JP Ong is MONEY FM 89.3’s Finance presenter for “Prime Time”. A self-confessed markets monkey, JP tracks how markets move across the globe – from the last hours of trading in Singapore and Asia leading up to the open in Europe and the US every afternoon – and fleshing out how markets and economies across the world are becoming more and more interconnected with each other.


Prior to joining SPH Radio, JP cut his teeth as the markets anchor for Bloomberg TV Philippines in Manila – where he provided real-time coverage and tracking of Philippine and regional markets using the Bloomberg Terminal as well as interviewed some of the country’s top fund managers, CEOs, industry analysts and economic officials. Deciding he needed a break from daily studio makeup, JP swapped the camera for a radio microphone and has not looked back since.


JP has a keen interest in commodity markets and how geopolitical events from halfway across the world can influence the price of oil or nickel and vice versa. On his spare time, JP likes getting lost in interesting cities, listening to old music from jazz to classic rock or hip hop, and looking for the 3 W’s: whisky, wine and waves. He is in an open relationship with fish tacos.


Tune in to JP on "Prime Time" with Timothy Go and Rachel Kelly, weekdays from 4pm-7pm on MONEY FM 89.3.
