Channel NewsAsia turns 10 on March 1

I've visited their 10th Anniversary microsite. Quite interesting to learn the 10 trivia about Channel NewsAsia.

MediaCorp's Channel NewsAsia turns 10 on March 1 with a series of new initiatives on-air and online.

First up is the 10th Anniversary microsite, where viewers can revisit the top stories of the past decade and vote for what they think should make the Top 10.

They can also test their knowledge of the channel and even send in their birthday wishes.

The coming months will also see a varied programme line-up that showcases the best of Asia, its people, places and physical feats.

This includes a five-part series on Asia's most successful brands, premiering March 3.

MediaCorp's managing director for News, Woon Tai Ho said: "We made it to 10 years. It is a significant milestone considering we were a latecomer compared to well-established global news channels. We are now known for providing a viable alternative to these channels."

Channel NewsAsia was formed in 1999 in the midst of the Asian financial crisis. Since then, it has become the leading broadcaster in the region giving viewers an Asian perspective.

Its programmes and news coverage have also gone on to win multiple regional and international awards, including a silver for at the New York Festivals earlier this year.

From Channel NewsAsia, "Channel NewsAsia celebrates 10 years with online and on-air initiatives".
