Singapore media owner MediaCorp has launched a project to preserve the city-state’s history and broadcast media heritage.

Called ‘My story’, the project centres on a website that encourages Singaporeans to collect their best memories of various places around the country.

The memories collected will be used to create content that will run across MediaCorp’s TV, radio, newspaper, magazine and digital channels.

The project comes as MediaCorp prepares to move from its Caldecott Broadcast Centre to a new campus.

MediaCorp Deputy CEO, Chang Long Jong said in a press release: “We are inviting Singaporeans to use the website to share their memorable moments. These could be their stories related to a scene on TV, a song on radio, a news report, an encounter with a celebrity, or any related experience that evokes their memories.”

“Through this, we aim to capture and preserve Singaporeans’ memories of their broadcast media and related experiences as part of our national heritage in collaboration with Singapore Memory Project. We also hope that some of the stories will inspire us to develop more meaningful and compelling shows and formats for our audiences.”
