Taiwan Quick Take: KMT to revive online paper


Months after the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) shuttered the Central Daily News, a KMT official is planning to revive the newspaper by putting it online. KMT Chinese Affairs Department director Chang Rong-kung (張榮恭) yesterday confirmed that the newspaper, which is scheduled to resume publication next month, will be an electronic newspaper. According to Chang, the budget for running an electronic newspaper is just several million dollars annually, which is much cheaper than keeping it in the traditional format. Chang declined to reveal any information about the investors behind the new project.
