Public Television retains general manager

Public Television retains general manager

Taipei, Oct. 22 (CNA) The manager of the government-funded Public Television Service (PTS) has received unanimous support to begin a new three-year term as general manager, PTS Chairman Shaw Yu-ming said Tuesday. Sunshine Kwang won the votes of all 15 board members -- including two proxies -- present at a meeting held that day to select the next general manager, said Shaw. Two other board members did not participate. Prior to the vote, Kwang and two other candidates were interviewed by members of the board, Shaw said. He did not reveal the identity of the losing candidates, citing secrecy rules. Shaw said he favors Kwang because of her familiarity with public television. Kwang, 62, has held the job since February 2011 and has spent much of the last 25 years working in the field of television and broadcasting. She has also taught journalism at National Chengchi University and has worked for the now-defunct Government Information Office. (By Sabine Cheng and Jay Chen)
