In recent years, audiences are more engaged to the talk shows on TV. The experienced media director Ng Yu, vise chairman of PCCW Ho Laichun and senior TV producer Wilson Qian were invited to the general assembly of Journalism and Communication Department at Hong Kong Shue Yan University yesterday. They came and talked about the recent development of TV talk shows.


“The standard of Hong Kong talk shows was declining while those of mainland and Taiwan progressed a lot in recent years,” Ng Yu said. Mainland’s "The World is a Woman" and Taiwan's "Emperor Kangxi" were both the successful examples of good talk shows. Ng said a good talk show was greatly dependable on the skills of the host.


Ho Laichun said Mainland program “The World Is a Woman” was very well structured. “Although the program caused a loss of male audience due to the concentration on female content, the host of it was very knowledgeable that he could always dig into those topics which most audiences were interested,” he said.



Learning to Ask Sharp Questions

Ng said the CBS talk show "60 Minutes" host Mike Wallace who had just past away could ask sharp and good questions which was crucial to the show’s success. “Wallace became a host after being a journalist for 50 years so his questioning skill was excellent. He could ask sharply and concisely, but at the same time, he could catch the heart of the respondents and let they talk frankly and comfortably,” Ng said.


Ng said Wallace would wisely use words like "Come on”, to set respondents at ease at the beginning of the show. When Wallace could not continue on the topic or start a new topic, he would simply say “Forgive me”, to end the show in a witty way. “Wallace was our role model. His skills were absolutely worthy for hosts or journalists nowadays to learn,” Ng said.
