Eric Tsang Appointed Deputy General Manager Of TVB; Wong Cho Lam Named Chief Creative Officer
Can they help the troubled station out of its slump?
The Hongkong entertainment industry is in dire straits at the moment, with one veteran reporter claiming that there are some 600 artistes who are currently out of a job.
Things are so bad that some have had to rely on financial aid to get by, and Liza Wang even used her platform at the recent TVB Anniversary Awards to call on the broadcaster to give its artistes pay raises once the pandemic dies down.
As a result, TVB has been scrambling to remedy this very worrying situation, and it looks like one of their ways is to do a bit of corporate restructuring at upper management level.
On Thursday (Jan 21), Hongkong media reported that TVB chairman Thomas Hui sent an internal letter to all employees announcing that veteran star Eric Tsang will be taking on the roles of Deputy General Manager and special advisor to the executive committee.
