Chirmsak stops hosting radio talk following threat

Chirmsak stops hosting radio talk following threat

My take: It's time for Thailand to have public radio!!

Former Bangkok senator Chirmsak Pinthong Wednesday gave up hosting in his daily radio talk show after he criticised Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej for allegedly covering up the Thammasat University massacre of October 6, 1976.

PM's Office Minister Jakrapob Penkair, who supervises the Public Relations Department, telephoned production house Fatima Co to give notice that he might not extend its airtime contract, a company source said.

The explanation given was that the show's content had to be adjusted to match the new programming schedule, the source said.

The company asked Chirmsak about Jakrapob's reason. He understood the situation by withdrawing as a radio host, the source said.

"Chirmsak's Views" was broadcast from 8-9pm on FM105, which is under the PRD.
