18 Feb – CTI HKTV big boss, Ricky Wong is confident that his station will be able to get its free TV license as soon as March this year.
Groove Asia website reported that at a Chinese New Year event hosted by HKTV recently, Ricky expressed, "I think my colleagues, the Hong Kong residents and myself would want the government to get something accomplished."
Asked about his earlier statement that the process is complicated, he stated, "As expected, but the process is going smoothly now. I heard the license should be approved by the end of March. We can then start preparing for the war."
Earlier, it was rumoured that he is planning to hold a demonstration at the government offices if the license grant is being delayed yet again.
To this, Ricky stated, "[We have] no such plans. I believe the government will actively handle the licenses. There is good news on all aspects at the moment so I am quite confident."
Meanwhile, the HKTV CEO gave out HKD100 lucky packets to all of his employees during the Lunar New Year party, much to their delight.
