The Asian American Business Development Center held a panel discussion on June 21 with representatives of ethnic media outlets in the New York area to find a way to cooperate with each other.

Six media outlets participated in the discussion: The Korea Times, World Journal, Amsterdam News, NY Carib News, Impacto Latin News, and BronxNet.

Soyoung Kim of The Korea Times stressed, “There are many ethnic media outlets in each of the various communities in New York City, however, there are few chances for them to communicate with each other. In New York City where diverse ethnicities and issues are intertwined, it is necessary to have a channel for those media outlets to network.”

[The participants] also indicated that each community has different interests and concerns, which makes it hard for the ethnic press to cooperate or communicate.

“Readers of ethnic newspapers tend not to pay much attention to other social issues, even though it is a seriously discussed matter, unless it is directly related to them. It is important to start out with small efforts such as sharing information in common interests between each publication,” Joe Wei of the World Journal said.

The panel discussion was arranged to seek measures to build a cooperative system for ethnic media. The need for discussion was raised when each publication reported the Peter Liang case from varied perspectives.
