After Sharp Daily hit the street, Alan Lo Kok-lun, president of AM730, still believes that AM730 could survive under the fierce competition from the other five free newspapers.

“Sharp Daily is like tabloids and even has erotic content, but we are focusing on business issues more. We are clearly on a different market,” Lo affirmed. “I believe that AM730 will survive.”

Addressing the journalism students in Hong Kong Shue Yan University, he said that their paper is aimed at the middle-class and is more intellectual. It gives in-depth stories with professional news angles.

Rumors analyzed that AM730 does not have the traditional newspaper group support. This would be AM730's weakness compared with with other free paper, like Headline Daily which is published by Singtao News Corporation.

Lo stayed firm and said, “I am used to being looked down by others, but I trust the founder, Mr. Shih, otherwise I would not have joined the paper.” He claims that if the newcomers do not boost up their circulation, even facing an imbalance of payments, AM730 can surely survive.

Lo added, “A newspaper does not only sell its content but also sells its style. Its style attracts reader and gives them identities.” He said people like to hold an Apple Daily on their hands because they think Apply Daily represents their personality.

Lo disagreed that free newspaper should contain erotic content. “The first issue of Sharp Daily has written things about ‘bras’ and ‘T-backs’,” Lo said with a smile. ”To me, it is unacceptable to have obscene content in AM730.”

He explained that certain parents took free newspapers for their children, as they expected that free newspapers would be “clean”. Since Sharp Daily broke the rules, parents might accidentally let their children access erotic content.

The Television and Entertainment Licensing Authority also received complaints regarding this.

Sharp Daily is the second free paper published within the past two months. It is published by Next Media, which also produces 290,000 copies of Apple Daily.
