Digital Broadcasting Corporation is Hong Kong’s first digital radio broadcaster which fully operated in May 2012. On August 3, 2012, company’s chairman and major shareholder Beijing-loyalist Wong Cho-bau announced he would withhold an investment of HK50 million, ultimately lead to the stop of official programme. Station’s co-founder and host Albert Cheng Kong-hon claims DBC’s troubles are result of suppression of freedom of speech.
Allegations of misconduct in public office and accepting an advantage finally due to be heard in High Court
DBC Radio hosts staged a sit-in outside government headquarters on Friday, claiming that the radio station's closure in the wake of a funding row was “politically motivated."
After announcing it was going off the air last week, Digital Broadcasting Corporation has bounced back with a seven-day “revival campaign”, co-founder Albert Cheng said on Monday.
