Mr Loh had worked at Mediacorp for more than 24 years, the company said.

According to his bio on Mediacorp’s website, he joined their radio division as a fresh graduate from Ngee Ann Polytechnic.

In his career with them, he hosted almost every programme on the 93.8FM frequency, including morning to evening drive-times.

Besides this, he was also the station’s creative director, responsible for the sound of the station.

Those with sharp ears might also have recognised his voice when he gave commentary for the National Day Parade and narrated award-winning documentaries for CNA.

That’s why Mediacorp paid tribute to him by saying,

Eugene’s deep and expressive voice made him a natural storyteller.

Gone too soon

While Mr Loh may have left us all too soon, his legacy will remain in the work he has done and people he has touched through his shows.

MS News sends our condolences to all who knew him, including his friends and family members.
