New rules on TV guests as pre­sen­ters

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

Guests of TV pro­grams can­not be em­ployed as pre­sen­ters, ac­cord­ing to a cir­cu­lar is­sued by the State Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Press, Pub­li­ca­tion, Ra­dio, Film and Tele­vi­sion.

TV shows, in­clud­ing news, com­men­tary and in­ter­view pan­els, should not re­cruit guests in the role of sup­port­ing host, said the cir­cu­lar. The roles of guest and host in broad­cast­ing and TV pro­grams should be clear-cut, it said.

TV hosts are re­spon­si­ble for the show, guid­ing the au­di­ence and con­trol­ling the pace of the live broad­cast. Thus, it is un­suit­able for guests to be hosts or pre­sen­ters, said the cir­cu­lar. It also called for more train­ing for hosts and guests be­fore a show is recorded.

The reg­u­la­tion will of­fi­cially take ef­fect on July 1.
