Political commentator and media academic Cherian George is joining the Hong Kong Baptist University's School of Communication in August.

Dr George will take up the post of associate professor under an initial contract for three years, the South China Morning Post reported today. The move was confirmed by the university.

The 49-year-old was previously a journalism professor at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and a former Straits Times journalist.

He left his teaching position at NTU in February after his tenure application to the university was denied last year and his appeal turned down.
