Media sector: Newspaper set for relaunch

DEUM Ampil News will resume publishing its print edition today after a hiatus of more than five months, its lead newsman said yesterday.

“We hope ... it will be strongly supported by our readers and it will also help in developing and promoting the freedom of the press, opinion and democracy,” said Soy Sopheap, general director of the DAP Media Centre.
 
He said the new-look DAP News will come out with four pages in full colour three days a week – Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday – and would have a circulation of 4,000. The paper will cover all political developments in the Kingdom, he said, giving coverage to opposition parties and civil society in addition to the ruling Cambodian People’s Party.

DAP News suspended print operations on July 2 due to financial difficulties, but continued to produce content online.

“We want more newspapers to be published for our readers in Cambodia and I strongly welcome the re-publishing of DAP News,” said Yem Noy, director of the media centre at the Ministry of Information.

Soy Sopheap said advertisers had already shown interest in the new publication and expected it to be financially self-supporting soon. The DAP Media Centre was established four years ago yesterday.
