History[edit]

The 8TV Quickie premiered on January 8, 2004, the first day 8TV started its transmission at 9.30pm. Its original time-slot was 9.30pm to 9.45pm and then from 11.45pm to 12.00 midnight on weeknights. Weekends was from 10.30pm to 10.45pm and then from 11.45 pm to 12.00 midnight on weekends. In 2005, after more than a year on air, 8TV shortened its two-part 15-minutes nightly time-slot to only a one-part 15-minutes nightly.

Hosts[edit]

Originally, the hosts were Soo Kui Jien and Marion Caunter. Soo Kui Jien, better known as just Jien, left the show in February 2004, only a month after its launch. He was replaced by Adam Carruthers who began hosting the 8TV Quickie in March 2004.

In May 2006, Aishah Sinclair became a regular replacement host for Marion Caunter who became increasingly busy with 8TV's new reality show at the time, One In A Million. In September 2006, Adam left the show with Aishah and newcomer Keshminder Sadhu (Kesh) taking over as permanent hosts. Later that year, Marion Caunter similarly announced her departure from the 8TV Quickie eventually landing herself a job as a VJ on Channel [V].

In January 2007, the Quickie welcomed another new addition in former newscaster Edleen Ismail. However his residence on the show along with Kesh turned out to be "short lived" as both hosts announced their departures in February and April respectively. With that, Razif Hashim, joined the show in April of that year.

May 1, 2007 saw Belinda Chee of Teman join the Quickie family with Aishah and Razif announcing their departures from the show the following year. Aishah Sinclair left to join ntv7's Venus and Razif Hashim decided to further his studies in the UK. They were replaced by Phat Fabes and Rina Omar with Henry Golding eventually joining.

For the year 2009, Phat Fabes and Rina Omar signed off for the last time, with Fly FM announcer Prem Shankar and newcomer Zher Peen taking over the reigns. Hunny Madu, also of Fly FM, joined the crew soon after.
