An anonymous group posted a full-page ad in Apple Daily on Monday warning that the government is planning to grant Commercial Radio a three-year licence instead of the usual 12 years. The paper in the same edition ran a report claiming top management at the station were really worried that this would amount to censorship. The station's current licence will expire in August. We don't know who the Apple sources were, but if I were one of the station's bosses, I wouldn't break a sweat. With the July 1 mass rally and the furore over Commercial Radio's Teacup In A Storm host Albert Cheng King-hon, the last thing this besieged government wants is another free-speech controversy from the city's most popular radio station. I bet $100 that the station will get its 12-year licence in no time. Any takers?
