DPM Zahid congratulates RTM on 77th anniversary

KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi congratulates the Broadcasting Department of Malaysia (RTM) on its 77th anniversary on Saturday (April 1).

He said that RTM, from the past until today, has remained relevant and prominent as a medium for delivering the national agenda in line with the broadcasting department's slogan, "Teman Setia Anda (Your Loyal Partner)".

Ahmad Zahid also expressed confidence that with the experience of the new director-general of broadcasting Suhaimi Sulaiman leading the department, RTM will remain as one of the country's leading media platforms.

"Personally, RTM is quite close to my heart, not to mention having been together once before. Despite stiff competition from commercial stations and the existence of new media, RTM remains prominent.

"To the RTM workers in Angkasapuri and in the state stations, I take the opportunity to thank you for the connection and coverage given to me, the party and the ministry I lead.

"Hope (RTM) will be able to continue working hard to provide services and information to the people,” he said in a Facebook post Saturday.

RTM, which currently has six TV channels and 34 radio stations, celebrates its founding anniversary on April 1 every year. - Bernama
