HKSYU, 25 Sep - "The newspaper is dying but the press has a good future," said Tim Chan, the executive chief editor of Hong Kong Economic Journal.


Chan said Apple Daily had been provided to college students in the Journalism Department at a low price (2 HKD). But only 4 students subscribed to it. And a year later, Apple Daily lost the only 4 subscribers. He pointed out that almost everyone has a smartphone, and people could get information from their smartphones easily. Few people buy newspaper anymore except for the old. "Radio, television and Internet didn't replace newspaper but technology did," said Chan.

Chan believes this is the age of news. He said the need for information has increased even though the sales of newspaper has decreased. "People get the latest news from websites, apps and social networks even faster than me, who works as an editor for a newspaper." Chan thought it was a great change.


Economic and financial news seems to be very abstruse, nonetheless more average people have started to pay attention to it because of inflation. To cater to the needs of the market, newspapers started to have their own economic and financial pages, which rapidly grew into financial newspapers, radio programs and TV programs. Chan pointed out that it is worth it to be a economic and financial journalist.

"Don't worry if you have no idea about economics and accounting, because so do many excellent journalists. You can do it if you want," said Chan.
