Bernama News on Astro

Beginning today, Malaysia's national news agency, Bernama, aired four news bulletins in Malay, English, Mandarin and Tamil languages. The Malay news bulletins goes on air at 8.30 pm on Astro Ria (ch 4) while the English bulletin at 7.30 pm on Astro Prima (ch 8). The Mandarin and Tamil bulletins were transmitted on two other channels.

Congratulations to the Bernama Audio Visual team for a job well done. It is a good start and hopefully, in the not so far future, Bernama TV can go on air for at least 12 hours as a specialise news and current affairs channel representing the Asean region.

To Ahmad Wahab and his team, congratulations and the very best for the future.

Pak Tuan,

Sama2 kita mendoakan ABAW dan anak-anak buahnya akan berjaya. ABAW adalah antara warga Bernama yang paling lama berkhidmat (walaupun pernah berhijhrah) ke sektor swasta satu masa dulu.

Saya yakin ABAW akan mempamirkan penampilan berita yang jauh lebih baik dari Berita RTM. Berita RTM tak lebih dari Zam Zam alakazam!!

Kita semua member lama Pak Tuan! You are doing a good job too! Keep it up!

Bernama bukankah kepunyaan kerajaan. Kenapa harus disiarkan dalam ASTRO. Betul-betul pelik?

Tuan Syed,

Thank you for your kind words for Bernama TV. Such words of encouragement would boost the spirit of all in Bernama including your good friend Datuk AU.
Credit must also be given to former executive editor Zainoor Sulaiman who went against the tide to start the audio-visual project.
Let's hope the reality radio project will also bring good name to Bernama.

Apa yang pelik? Kerajaan "tak pandang" Bernama. Hidup segan mati tak mahu. Kerajaan sekarang dah ada institusi media yang hebat. Pandang kiri, pandang kanan, semua media kerajaan. Tak begitu Pak tuan? Bernama? Takat makan tanggung saja. Kalau tutup pun berbaloi. RTM, Bernama, Filem Negara, sampai saat, jadi tukun ikan saja.

For the record, the idea for Bernama to have a tv media was not mooted by Zainoor Sulaiman although it was realised when he was the editor. Credit must not be given when it is not due.

Tuan Syed,

Being a former Bernama top executive, you may know very well who proposed the idea of Bernama TV. If Zainoor is not the man, who could that be. Was it you?

Syed Imran said...

No, it was not me. I do not wish to claim credit for it. I am certain it was not Zainoor's idea at all. I do not want to go into details because it may lead to personal "matters" concerning Zainoor. To avoid it, no more comments on who is to be credited for Bernama TV will be debated here.
