Doctor Charles Chan (陳國強) is suspected to resign from his position, Chairman in TVB after working for 8 years and rumours of politics existing in the company are going viral. Because of the “fighting” among the senior management, many artistes become the “sacrifices” and Liza Wang (汪明荃) and Eric Tsang (曾志偉) showed their anger towards TVB publicly.
Apparently, TVB is not as glamorous as before and TVB Executives such as Sandy Yu (余詠珊), Felix To (杜之克), Catherina Tsang (曾勵珍) and Virginia Lok (樂易玲) have their own group of people. During an awards ceremony (50周年光輝獎), Liza said while delivering her thank you speech: “I hope the firm will cherish every staff. Although we are very hardworking and willing to suffer any hardship, but please show additional concern, increase our break time and less politics problems. I believe we can develop and retains the talents successfully.”
Subsequently, it won applause from many artistes and Liza explained during an interview: “Honestly speaking, many companies have politics issues and hopefully TVB will cherish every talent if it plans to develop the industry. Anyway, I have provided the feedback on their behalf.” However, Law Kar Ying (羅家英) felt Liza should speak further while attending an event: “Of course, we need to pay respect to the leaders and there are many different leaders in TVB.”
As for Eric, he worked for TVB many years and was pointed to have conflicts with Sandy. Hence, his work was suspended due to offending the firm. As the host of Ms Hong Kong Pageant for several times, Eric showed his dissatisfaction towards Sandy when she changed the live broadcast to recording for 2013 Ms Hong Kong Pageant. He reprimanded her: “Oh my god! Ms Hong Kong Pageant is supposed to be live broadcast and why change it to recording?” In September 2017, Eric also criticised Ms Hong Kong Pageant: “It is unbelievable!” Finally, he complained about the location shooting in Sai Kung last year and it is obvious that Eric does not give any face to TVB.
As such, Eric seldom works with TVB because of the conflicts until he was invited to host TVB Anniversary Gala Show (萬千星輝賀台慶) 2 years ago. However in 2018, he agreed to turn up at ViuTV program (Good Night Show 全民睇波派對) as the guest and even led a team of “celebrities footballers” (明星足球隊) to watch the world cup in Russia. It looks like Eric is drawing a separate line with TVB after all.
