Radio Australia – August 19, 2008

One of Cambodia’s three daily English-language newspapers, The Mekong Times, will close.

Editor-in-chief, Neth Pheaktra, says the company had decided to stop publishing because of a budget crisis.

The Mekong Times, which also published in the Cambodian language, hit the stands last February.

The announcement of its demise comes ten days after The Phnom Penh Post, one of the kingdom’s leading papers, launched its first daily edition.

Cambodia’s burgeoning media market now has two English-language dailies, one English weekly, a number of glossy magazines and a large and lively Cambodian-language press.
