No ATV newscasts after staff quit

Crisis-hit Hong Kong broadcaster Asia Television (ATV) failed to air its Chinese and English newscasts last Saturday after staff quit en masse, reported South China Morning Post.

ATV's free-to-air licence requires it to air those newscasts. The employees had quit last Friday over unpaid wages. ATV's broadcasting licence is due to expire on April 1.
