Congratulations to our popular colleague Steve James, who’s been declared top on-air personality in the main Asia-wide broadcasting awards, the ABU Prizes. Steve has been hailed as number one for his weekday afternoon show by the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union – which has a network of members that can reach 3 billion people across the region! It’s great recognition for Steve, who’s been with Radio 3 for the past 17 years. As well as hosting his show, The Steve James Afternoon Drive – to give it its full title – with its comic social observations, parody songs and social media engagement, he’s also the producer of Vintage Chart Toppers, and works his magic on lots of the Radio 3 trails and theme tunes that you hear every day. In all, RTHK won four top prizes in the seven radio categories – an unprecedented success – the others coming in the documentary, news reporting and community service announcement sections.
Money Talk will return on Monday, when we’re joined by Alex Wong, Director of Asset Management at Ample Capital, and also Charles Mok, legislator representing the IT functional constituency, who will give his thoughts on some of the measures contained in the policy address. (8:00am-8:30am, email to email@example.com, or leave your comments on Facebook or Twitter)
On Tuesday's Backchat we are talking about the ban on e-cigarettes. The CE has changed the previous plan to restrict their sale to minors, and the latest proposal will prohibit the import, sales and promotion of e-cigarettes and other new tobacco products. The plan has triggered reactions from both sides. Some doctors say that it will help prevent more people from smoking - especially the younger generation. Advocates of e-cigarettes claim it is a step backward and contrary to international trends. Will the ban be effective to encourage smokers to quit smoking and promote public health? Or instead drive smokers to buy traditional tobacco products?
After 9:20, we will take a look at the latest developments in the Kowloon West by-election.
