Melisa Idris

Assistant Vice President, Editor

Astro Awani

Melisa is the Assistant Vice President, Editor, at Malaysia’s 24-hour news and current affairs channel, Astro Awani. 

Prior to her foray into television, Melisa was the host of ‘The Morning Run’, the morning drive-time show for BFM89.9, one of the leading business radio stations in the region. As a host, she facilitates discussion and debate about issues in finance, the economy, and governance. 

Melisa has interviewed senior policymakers, corporate leaders and international newsmakers, including Former Greek Finance Minister – Yanis Varoufakis, Nobel Prize Winner – Joseph Stiglitz and Starbucks Co-founder – Zev Siegl.  

Her fascination with news media began when she was attached to the Media & Foreign Newswires Division in the Malaysian National News Agency (BERNAMA). She later joined a leading Islamic finance publication as publishing manager and editorial coordinator. 

Her passion for socio-economic affairs eventually brought her to BFM’s doorstep, and in 2011 she joined the station, sharing a common goal of championing rational, evidence-based discourse as a key element of good policy decisions. 

In her current role, she now spends her time speaking to newsmakers and tackling tough issues from across the country and around the globe.
