Genevieve Woo (zh-sp|s=胡曼虹|p=Hú Mànhóng; born August 6, 1969) is a Singaporean television news presenter and producer with Singapore-based regional news network Channel NewsAsia, where she is the primary weekday anchor of "Singapore Tonight", a highly-rated daily news programme focusing on news and current events in Singapore. The programme is broadcast live from the Channel NewsAsia studio at 10pm (Singapore/Hong Kong time) every day. A recorded telecast of the programme is available at 1am (Singapore/Hong Kong time) the following day. She is also a substitute anchor of "Southeast Asia Tonight", "East Asia Tonight", "Primetime News", "Asia Tonight" and "World Tonight".

Background

Career

Woo has more than 15 years of experience in the media and communications industry. Prior to joining Channel NewsAsia, she served as Vice-President of Corporate Communications at parent company MediaCorp.

Woo first started working as a copywriter in advertising. She crossed over to journalism thereafter and served as an assistant editor at "TODAY", a free English-language tabloid in Singapore.

In addition, she sits on the academic board of the Jewellery Design and Management International School, where she contributes to the school's academic programme's communications courses. She is also an executive-committee member of the Guild of Jewellery Professionals and Artisans (GJPA), a not-for-profit society headquartered in Singapore.

Education

Woo graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Language and Literature from the National University of Singapore. She is embarking on her Master of Social Science degree in Psychology and Professional Counselling with Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia.

Interests

Film-making

In 2006, Woo set up a film-production company, Mythopolis Pictures, with Singapore-based American director Tony Kern, whom she is also dating.

Together with Kern, she co-produced a film called "The Mitre Spell" which weaves a whimsy tale around the mysteriously-spooky, colonial-era Mitre Hotel off Killiney Road in Singapore. The hotel has been in the news as the subject of a multi-million-dollar family lawsuit. The film premiered at the 2007 Singapore International Film Festival.

Another film Woo co-produced and Kern directed, "A Month of Hungry Ghosts", which captures the rituals and performances throughout an entire seventh-lunar-month Hungry Ghost Festival in Singapore, was released in Singapore on August 7, 2008, at Golden Village VivoCity, Golden Village Plaza and Sinema Old School.

Jewellery designing

Woo owns "Vintage Bunny", an online jewellery store specialising in modern handmade and authentic vintage jewellery, created using natural stones, pearls, Balinese silver and Austrian crystals.
