Former TVB general manager Stephen Chan Chi- wan has been appointed chief executive of Commercial Radio. Chan, who started his new job yesterday, said Hong Kong is in a nebulous state of "right versus wrong" and hopes that by providing the facts and proper analysis the station can help Hongkongers gain a clear picture about their options and future. Chan also hopes that he, along with the talented employees of the station, can serve the public. Commercial Radio deputy chairwoman Winnie Yu Tsang said she first discussed Chan's position with him last Thursday. His salary and terms of employment have yet to be confirmed. In December, Chan resigned from TVB, where he worked for 18 years, and said he would take time off for study tours in Silicon Valley in the United States. However, he postponed his plan and decided to stay as the political situation had changed.
Chan quit TVB two days after former founder and chairman Run Run Shaw retired from the board at the age of 104. Shaw was replaced by then executive deputy chairman Norman Leung Nai-pang. However, Chan said his resignation had nothing to do with the management reshuffle. A court cleared him of bribery allegations in December after an investigation by the Independent Commission Against Corruption. He was charged with wrongfully concealing a payment and other offenses.
