Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Former Rádio Macau presenter João Sameiro Afonso dos Reis passed away yesterday at the age of 83 in local public hospital Conde S. Januário.
The Portuguese national, better known as ‘Johnny Reis’, arrived in Macau as a child in 1939. After completing his studies, he worked as a public servant but less than a decade later he dived into the local radio world at Rádio Vila Verde.
In 1966 he moved into the public radio broadcaster, which later became Rádio Macau, where he was a presenter for about 40 years before retiring.
In addition, Reis was linked to the Miss Macau pageant contest, which he even presented on local television.
