"If there were a one-stop advisory on all matters relating to land transport in Singapore, it would be called Christopher Tan. He challenges policies that can be improved, breaks stories that might otherwise have gone unreported and keeps newsmakers honest. His nine Newscom awards this year shows that while other follow the narrative of their beat, Christopher shapes it."
