NCC says it has no ambitions in media

No one in his team other than himself has experience in running a radio station, You said.

“It has been the council’s position that our Hakka-language radio station would become part of the TBS,” he said.

Lo Mei-ching (羅美菁), senior executive officer of the council’s Department of Education and Culture, said Taiwan Indigenous TV used to be part of the TBS, but became a separate entity in 2014.

Lo said that Taiwan is not the only nation that has public media outlets for Aborigines, adding that such outlets exist in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Norway.

Lo said that public interests and the interest of the Aborigines do not match, as also seen in property rights and environmental issues.

Taiwan Indigenous TV is a public television, despite being separate from the TBS, which reports on issues and produces programs reflecting the perspectives of Aborigines, she said.

Since it became an independent entity, Taiwan Indigenous TV has hired many Aborigines to produce and host programs, she added.
