Mary Yang

is the Director of News and Public Affairs of A1 Chinese Radio. She also hosts a current affairs program, which covers daily news happening on the day, with in-depth analysis and interviews of newsmakers.

During her service with A1 Chinese Radio and Sing Tao Daily, she also had one-on-one interview with the Prime Minister for several times.

Her broadcasting career started at Radio Television Hong Kong. After she immigrated to Toronto, she joined Fairchild Radio to be a current affairs program host which began her journalist career. While working for Fairchild Radio, she covered various historic events, including the Hong Kong Handover and the Taiwan Presidential Election in 2000. She was later promoted to Director of News and Public Affairs.
