The programme is broadcast every Sunday evening at 8:00-8:30pm on RTHK Radio 2 from November 2020 to February 2021.

Dr Yung comments on the contestants’ performance in the areas of content and organisation, voice and originality in the radio programme The Speaker. The episodes, accessible at the RTHK website, are excellent resources for the teaching and learning of public speaking in English.
