Beijing closes 100 stations
More than a hundred radio stations across China have been shut down ahead of an upcoming Communist Party Congress. The stations, which broadcast phone-in programmes will close indefinitely.
Japan Today reports that [i]the stations were taken off-air because they let members of the public talk about sex and supernatural issues during phone-in programmes after midnight[/i]. A member of staff told Kyodo News that their station has been off the air since August 12 and she has no idea when broadcasting will resume.
