HONG KONG, DEC 11 – Raymond Wong, former assistant General Manager of Television Broadcasting Limited (TVB), said that the remuneration of reporters can be improved by cutting unnecessary spending and the news team director should fight for betterments for their subordinates.


According to the figures of Census and Statistics Department, the starting salaries for junior reporters have been below average in the past 5 years. Wong said that there is no definition on “fair wage” and it is the responsibility of the supervisor to fight for better benefits for their subordinates under the tight budget.


“The director should communicate with the members of administrative board more. I encourage them to praise excellent reporters by recommending them to the board with promotions and better payments,” said Wong.


Moreover, he added that the news team can also benefit the reporters by cutting out unessential trips. For example, Wong said that the director had made a wrong decision in sending inexperienced reporters to join the 2012 Nobel Prize presentation ceremony in Switzerland and dispatching two crews to cover the US President Election, which cost 200 thousand dollars, equaling the amount to the annual income of a typical reporter.


“I wonder if the news director should use the money to employ one more reporter or go for an extravagant trip, for which all the information can be obtained via local news agencies,” said Wong.


Wong hoped that the news director can make a wise choice in budget allotment and fight for more benefits for outstanding reporters in order or to retain talents.
