In related news, Tsai’s son, Tsai Shao-chung (蔡紹中), resigned as CtiTV chairman on Friday, reportedly in a move to pave the way for him to take the helm of the Chinese-language Apple Daily, one of the four Taiwanese media outlets previously owned by the Next Media Group that were sold in November last year to a consortium of which his father was a member.

Other media outlets included in the NT$17.5 billion (US$600.86 million) acquisition — which has been at the center of a recent spate of student protests against media monopoly — were Next TV as well as Chinese-language newspaper Sharp Daily and Next Magazine.

CtiTV general manager Ma Yung-jui (馬詠睿) will take over the position left vacant by Tsai Shao-chung.
