The 2nd CGTN Global Media Summit and the 8th CCTV+ Video Media Forum (VMF2018) opened in Chongqing Municipality, southwest China, on Oct. 16 2018. Jaime Ho, chief editor at Singapore’s Channel News Asia, shared his views on “Different Perspective of Views of Media on Reporting One Story.”


When reporting a story, media organizations can use different ways to report news. Such variations have existed since the birth of journalism, said Ho.


At present, it is “of crucial importance, more than ever”, for all media organizations to “understand and remain true to the context and their audience,” as the chief editor emphasized.


For mainstream media, Ho said it is a “must” to continuously “stay true to universal values even with the need to grow and maintain audiences”.


Drawn from his experience at Channel News Asia, he talked about how to take different perspectives to tell one story and to incorporate one’s background and context into observation.


He also stressed the importance of knowing the audience when developing the content to provide appropriate materials and build trust as “retention and growth of audiences remain the foremost priorities”.


Ho said that media organizations are faced with many challenges nowadays, but like Channel News Asia, it is their responsibility to “consistently provide clear and strong editorial judgments in balancing the three components of what our audiences want to know, should know, and must know”.
