Mark van Cuylenburg

Mark van Cuylenburg: Mark van Cuylenburg, the radio deejay aka “The Flying Dutchman”, was struck by a heart attack earlier this morning at 8am.

The 56-year-old van Cuylenburg has since undergone surgery for a stent to be inserted. According to his wife, Mr van Cuylenburg is feeling much better now and is resting in hospital.

The family requests privacy and thanks the public for their support and well-wishes.
 Mark van Cuylenburg, aka “The Flying Dutchman”, launched his career in the Singapore entertainment industry in the 70s, with his deejay job at Rediffusion. Mark was also part of “The Music Force”, an event and entertainment team, which comprised the most renowned entertainers who pioneered and moulded the events industry in the 80s and 90s. Thereafter, as part of the marketing arm at Marina Village, Mark helped promote its entertainment establishments.

In 1996, The Flying Dutchman was handpicked to join Class 95FM, and continues to co-host The Morning Express at the station, weekdays from 6am - 10am.

Besides lending his voice to radio and television commercials, appearing in TV commercials and various TV programmes (which included “Tonight With Gurmit”, “The Donny Lee Show”, “Upfront with Najip”, “Celebrity Squares” and “At Home With” on Channel NewsAsia), Mark is still recognized as the host for Singapore’s first ever version of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?”. In 2007, he was one of the three hosts on “The Dancefloor”. Mark also co-hosted Blog TV on Channel NewsAsia.

Mark is a professional emcee, who has done work at countless pageants, dinner events, launches, conferences in Singapore and abroad. A fairly recent accolade is being included twice in “People At The Peak – The Who’s Who Of Singapore”.
