Commercial Radio denies license link to host firing
(02-13 11:59)

Commercial Radio has rejected suggestions that the sacking of the outspoken talkshow host of On A Clear Day program is linked to the station's license renewal.
The broadcaster terminated the contract of Li Wei-ling yesterday, without explanation. This led to accusations that Li, a fierce critic of Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, was dismissed to boost the station's chances of renewing its license next year.
But Commercial Radio's principal adviser, Stephen Chan Chi-wan, stressed that the license renewal process had not yet begun, and no one had told him that anything Li said would affect the application.—RTHK
