KUALA LUMPUR, Apr 1 — Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin wants Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM), which has operated for over seven decades, to continue creating milestones in the national broadcasting and media production industry and being bold in making changes so that its services will remain fresh and relevant.
The prime minister said RTM should be prepared to change in line with the current development and advancement of technology while creating more success stories to bring the Malaysian Broadcasting Department to greater heights.
“The slogan RTM – Teman Setia Anda (your faithful companion) is indeed synonymous and reflects the services that it provides to the people. However, RTM must also be bold in making changes so that its services will remain fresh and relevant,” he said in his speech delivered virtually in conjunction with the 75th anniversary of RTM and 60th anniversary of RTM Orchestra today.
The anniversary celebration held at Angkasapuri here was attended by Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah, Deputy Minister Datuk Zahidi Zainul Abidin, Secretary-General Datuk Seri Mohammad Mentek and Broadcasting director-general Datuk Ruzain Idris.
In his speech, Muhyiddin also expressed hope that RTM would not be afraid to make necessary changes in the era of the fourth Industrial Revolution and to use its expertise and experiences to always improve, sustain and further develop its services. — Bernama
