8/21/2012 Commercial Radio (CRHK) held a press conference to publicly launch its newly created program, 一圈圈 (circles, loops) that will officially commence August 27 in the M-F 10 am - 12 pm timeslot, effectively replacing Eileen Cha's 15 year in the air long running《巴巴閉邊個夠我查篤撐》program.  The new program is jointly hosted by Elaine Ng (吳綺莉) , Tony Leung 梁泰來 and Vanessa Yeung 楊崢 , supplemented with occasional guest hosts.

CRHK CEO, Stephen Chan, using friendship card invited a host of friends as celebrityt hosts for the newly launched radio program, the first wave of guest hosts include: Steven Ma, Cally Kwong (鄺美雲), Anthony Wong(黃耀明), Leo Ku 古巨基, Pastor Lam 林以諾 Margie Tsang (曾華倩),  Hacken Lee (李克勤), Mak Ling Ling (麥玲玲),  張繼聰, 胡敏珊Christie, 何國鉦柳俊江,  Michael Cheng,丁子高, Andrew Lau (劉偉強).

Mr. Chan said he personally invited all the celebrity hosts. The content of the talk show will touch on movies, tv series, music etc with insiders from the E-circles talking about stuff with their respective E-circles. And relevant videos will be uploaded online for all to view.  And that this wave of celebrity hosts is but the tip of an iceberg, because there will be lots more of unexpected guest hosts to come.

When asked about celebrity hosting fees,  Mr. Chan laughed and said: "It's all about heart not money".  Upon hearing that, reporter commented that Mr. Chan with his friendship card saved CRHK lots of money, to which Mr. Chan laughed and said that it is all fraternal love. They all gave CRHK face."

Cally Kwong accepted Mr. Chan's invitation to be celebrity host unhesitatingly without even first discussed about compensation. Whe asked how much Mr. Chan paid her as celebrity host, she laughed and said they are good friends so will not discuss money matter. As owner of (1 or n# ) precious gems shops, Cally will talk about precious gems and also the study of Buddhism. Leo Ku jests  that he will invite one of his ex-girlfriends as his guest.  Paster Lam on Christianity. (tn: What will be Steven's topic?)

Mr. Chan refutes the rumors that Pansy Ho Chiu-king (Macao King of Gambling Stanley Ho's daughter) will acquire CRHK.

Mr. Chan said that Eileen Cha was originally offered one of the 3 permanent hosting positions but she rejected for a hosting job in tvb.

TN: I don't know most of the people on the list.
Wong Hei is not in the first wave of guest hosts because of work but Mr. Chan said he is working on getting him on board.

Actually back in 1999 Steven hosted a talk show in CRHK, along with his recent cooking show Steven should do well as a radio talk show host.

I didn't know that Elaine Ng was the very same actress that collaborated with Steven in the 1999 Ultra Protection.

So the guest hosts truly are not paid as guest hosts?
