Give new free-to-air broadcasters a chance

Hong Kong officially has a free-TV duopoly enjoyed by TVB and ATV. But, judging by market share and advertising revenue, TVB effectively dominates the airwaves.

Outspoken, and out of a job

Ricky Wong Wai-kay was withering in his criticism of Asia Television (ATV). The broadcaster's new chief executive told staff it was probably the worst-run corporation he had seen. It had no internal communications, no morale and no direction. 'I think I just need only 20 per cent of my previous experience to successfully turn around ATV,' he said, just days after taking up the role.
