Journalism has become an uneasy job over the last decade. A single reporter may be the photographer and the technician at the same time. With such an overwhelming workload, the director of Commercial Radio Hong Kong (CRHK), doubts whether journalists can still maintain the quality of news reports.


Chan Suk-mei, Director of the News & Public Affairs Unit of CRHK, said today during a conference held at Hong Kong Shue Yan University that the media industry is facing complex challenges from advancing technology. Chan thinks that that lack of talent, fierce competition, and financial difficulties will hinder the development of new media. Many media companies are cutting costs in order to maintain a balance between profit and loss, and Chan questions if this would decrease the quality of news reports. “Is it possible for a reporter to do so many tasks without mistakes?” she asked.


Host of the conference, Lee Ka-man, asked the Chief Editor of Apple Daily, Cheung Kim-hung, if reporters can handle a series of detailed questions when covering news alone. Cheung admitted that there are always omissions. He also said that Apple Daily is willing to put a large proportion of resources on new media development, but they haveyet to implement a systematic news reporting procedure. “Many journalists are complaining of heavy workloads,” added Cheung.
