RTM celebrates 67th anniversary, hints at new product launch

Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) will focus more on the latest technology and social media applications to ensure it provides the best services to the public.

Director-General Dato’ Norhyati Ismail said RTM, which celebrated its 67th anniversary on Monday (1 April), needed to keep up with such new media and not just rely on conventional forms.

“This is our focus on development now, through the use of the latest technology and social media. “We may launch a surprise (new product) to be announced shortly,” she told reporters after attending RTM’s monthly assembly and 67th anniversary celebration in Angkasapuri.

During the event, 41 RTM staff members who were involved in the coverage on the Sulu terrorist intrusion in Lahad Datu were presented with certificates of appreciation for their service.

“They carried out their duties and responsibilities well in a trying situation and their efforts must be truly appreciated,” she said.
