National Communications Commission (NCC) yesterday asked TVBS Media to offer a formal explanation as to why it removed an interview with American Institute in Taiwan Chairman James Moriarty from its Web site after broadcasting it just once on cable television before the local elections in November last year.
The commission made the request after a preliminary review of a proposed change of management at the broadcaster.
Following the retirement of former chairman Harvey Chang (張孝威) in September, the company’s board has named VIA Technologies chairman Chen Wen-chi (陳文琦) as chairman and Arthur Ting (丁廣鋐) as vice chairman.
However, the change must be approved by the NCC.
NCC commissioners invited Chen and Ting to answer questions about the proposed changes, NCC chief secretary and acting spokesperson Hsiao Chi-hung (蕭祈宏) said. [FULL STORY]
