PETALING JAYA: Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo says there is no indication to reduce the staff of the Malaysian National News Agency (Bernama) and Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM).
In fact, he said, these two organisations especially Bernama had carried several changes to keep up with technology.
“When you look entities like Bernama, you can see it is undergoing many reforms as we have already started on the effort to change … to project ourselves, I think you can see new programmes, new look and feel factor we have adopted.
“So the question of jobs has really not come back to me yet, but it is something I will leave it to Bernama to decide and they will probably come back to me later, but at this point in time there is no indication there will be cut (reduce) … yet.
“And as for RTM, we are also looking at how we can transform, as you know recently we have just shut down the analog broadcast and had gone digital … once you have digital then there is potential for a lot more television stations, a lot more channels … a lot more content,” he said yesterday when asked whether there was a plan to reduce the number of staff in Bernama and RTM just like Media Prima Berhad. — Bernama
