HONG KONG, April 4, 2019 – It’s no secret that there are far more media and TV production graduates in Asia and across the globe than there are jobs and that even the brightest and most creative students face a bloody, tooth-and-nail battle to get a foothold in a massively competitive industry.
TV Production As a way of helping the University journalism students and journalists that have just joined the field, Hong Kong Sports Press Association has got them covered. TV production lessons were offered to the young reporters group thanks to national television TVB that has always offered some basic television tips – another way of finding new ways to give their students the edge over rivals and to ensure they are equipped to grab those crucial entry-point posts back into their countries.
The Young Reporters toured the TVB facilities to understand exactly what happens during different broadcasts be it live or recorded which was a great experience for many. A few were selected to do TV interviews which gives them confidence for future TV presentations.
Earlier on, the reporters also had theory and practical lessons on the game of cricket at the Cricket Club and lacrosse at Hong Kong Sports Institute to ease their reporting skills on the game.

The ground is set against a backdrop of the picturesque Hong Kong skyline and the immaculate outfield, combined with square of top class turf pitches, offers quite a remarkable playing experience.
In addition, players have the opportunity to benefit from one of Asia’s leading indoor facilities, ensuring each and every player has the opportunity to bring their game to new heights.
In Men’s Senior Cricket, the Club is represented in the domestic leagues by six individual squads covering both Saturday and Sunday cricket, through an extensive playing season lasting from September to May where highest performing individuals are selected to represent the Club in its Premier League XI; a squad that competes in all formats against Hong Kong’s strongest domestic competitors.
