Creator and Executive Producer of Asia Pop 40, Rob Graham, said, “When we started the chart all those years ago, I never imagined it would become such a recognized show across Asia. To reach 200 shows is a really proud moment for me and my incredibly professional team and we are all looking forward to the next 200 shows!”

Graham added, “We would like to thank all our partners, affiliates, labels, artists’ management and the artists themselves who have all supported us from episode number one.”
