Hong Kong – An independent public service broadcasting review committee has recommended that Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) not be the foundation of the proposed independent pubcaster, to avoid inheriting the government department’s bureaucratic structure and work culture.

There has been widespread concern over RTHK’s editorial independence as it operates within the government under the Broadcasting Authority and receives direct government funding. RTHK runs seven radio channels and produces television programmes that are aired by local TV stations.
