Resignation from CCTV
According to the Japanese media the head of the PR department in CCTV, Xia Guanghong, resigned from his director post. During the lunar years (February 14-15), CCTV had all night entertainment programs including singing and dancing. However, CCTV made about 6.5 millions yuan in profit from commercials. This outraged the Chinese audience who complained about the issue over the internet. Less than 10 days after the Chinese new year, the director resigned from his job. Who says that China does not have the public opinion?
After growing up and studying in China and Japan, Dr. Suganuma went to the U.S. for graduate studies, earning master’s degrees at both St. John's University (in Chinese studies) and Syracuse University (in international relations) as well as a Ph.D. (in geography) from the Maxwell School of Syracuse University.
