Former interim CEO lays out what SPH Media Trust needs to succeed

The Straits Times, page B4 -

By 2045, SPH Media Trust (SMT) could be a financially independent, thriving media group with products in four languages that are trusted by audiences who pay for premium content, both in Singapore and abroad, said SMT director and former interim chief executive Patrick Daniel. Mr Daniel said he was confident that SMT would be able to achieve its goal of being financially independent if given resources. He cited two recent surveys by NTU WKWSCI and the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, which he said showed strong interest in news and readership in Singapore, and high levels of trust in local media.
