> Well done Minister !

Public response for the restructuring of the television channels over Radio Television Malaysia (RTM) on Thursday has been positive so far, said Deputy Information Minister Datuk Tan Lian Hoe.

She said she was very happy at the good response, and thanked the people for their trust and hoped that both TV channels would continue to give more information including from abroad.

"So far, we have not received any negative comment (on the restructuring), so we hope TV1 and TV2 will continue to be the people's choice," he said at a public function organised by the Gerakan, here Saturday.

Following the restructuring, the RTM1 channel is now known as TV1 and becomes the news and information channel while RTM2 is now known as TV2 with the theme "Dunia Ria" which airs various programmes including entertainment, movies, and dramas for all strata of society - Bernama.

A good job done by the minister in restructuring the TV1 and TV2 channels to the present format. Let's only hope that he increases the airtime for Tamil and Chinese segments in line with Malaysia's multi-racial image - My Journal.
