We speak with Taiwan based freelance journalist Jane Rickards about her recent article for Taiwan Business TOPICS magazine, which takes a hard look at the state of Taiwan media in 2016. We discuss the strengths and challenges of Taiwan’s often sensationalist news media, along with some new players on the scene that may shake things up in the years to come.

Find the article, “Taiwan’s Changing Media Landscape,” here.
