Phoenix Satellite Hong Kong Channel yesterday officially launched from its Tai Po headquarters. Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam Kuen, former Legislative Council President Rita Fan Hsu Lai-Tai, Phoenix Satellite chairman/CEO Liu Changle. Famous media person Lo Mik Shuet will open the all new program that also premiered yesterday. For the first episode she invited friends Chapman To Man Jat and Gigi Leung Wing Kei.
Lo Mik Shuet stated that the contract with Phoenix Satellite was for a year. She would host Monday to Friday. The program would be about Hong Kong life attitude, food, film, music and other topics. If she were to invite aritsts, would she face restrictions from artists who work with TVB? Lo Mik Shuet said, "Hong Kong has many free people, for example (Eason) Chan Yik Shun would come. I haven't thought of this step yet because I wanted to have a topic first before deciding which guests to invite. (Would you invite good friend Yuen Siu Cheung?) I can book him, actually I haven't stepped on this land mine yet. If I really do I may personally call Ms. Lok (TVB executive Elaine Lok Yi Ling). If they can speak Cantonese, they can speak Putonghua!" Lo Mik Shuet also said that she already turned down TVB series LIZA AND THE GODS (CHUEN GA FOK LOK SAU TAM ONG) but agreed to write a woman romantic comedy film script for Ms. Lok. Heiward Mak Hei Yan would direct and Eric Tsang Chi Wai would produce.
In addition, Lo Mik Shuet said that because this year would be the Hong Kong Film Award's 30th anniversary, she would like to invite Wai Ying Hung, Wong Jing and others to discuss film topics. Would she invite good friend Isabella Leong Lok Si? Lo Mik Shuet said, "I want to, if she has no problem I can make the arrangements, but I have to ask. (Aren't you the one to ask?) It's not like she definitely would do what I book, she has free will too."
