100 Most Influential Filipinos in the Gulf: Steve Patrick Moore – TV Personality
Charming Filipino-American TV personality and sports announcer, Steve Patrick Moore was born to talk in front of the camera. From being an inquisitive and articulate high school kid making class presentations and joining quiz bees on TV, to taking up Broadcast Communication in college, Steve has grown into a host of world-class sporting events. His gigs include the One Championship – the most massive MMA promotion in Asia, the FIFA World Cup beach soccer event in the Bahamas among other high profile events with turnouts of up to fifty-thousand people.
He is currently a host at Physique TV, broadcasted in the Middle-East and Africa, and will soon be presenting ‘Trending Pinoy’ – a dynamic program for Filipinos all over the world. He shares: “I take pride in having Filipino blood, especially now that I’ll be hosting a show for the community – showcasing what Filipinos have to offer the world. I would like to humbly consider myself as the jolly ambassador of trending stuff for and by Pinoys abroad.”
As for what’s next, Steve aspires to make a name for himself in radio. It has been a dream to run a sports talk show of his own. In getting there, he expresses the prominence of confidence and aggressiveness – especially when it comes to us Filipinos: “I think we need to be hungrier and have that drive to want some more. To be able to succeed you need to be confident in what you believe and want. Chase the dream and be aggressive. I hope more Filipinos will have a higher sense of pride in any of the paths they take, have greater opportunities, and become pivotal parts of society worldwide.”
