Description/Programs:
The Buddhist Channel (BC) was officially launched on October 25, 2004. The BC is actually a "rebranding" exercise which culminated from the demise of the old "Buddhist News Network" (BNN), which began operations in May 8, 2001. Using the latest web technologies on content publication, the BC remains the world's only dedicated Buddhist news servcies, providing daily updates and in-depth coverage.rn
Based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the Buddhist Channel is the brain child of its founder, Lim Kooi Fong. Lim is a well known Dharma speaker in Malaysia and has been involved in Buddhist related activities since 1985. Apart from giving talks, he also conducts Sutta Study lessons and has published children story books based on the Jataka.rn
All effort to sustain the site are made voluntarily, and the the Buddhist Channel remains very much a not for profit endeavour.rn
To augment the BC's premier position as a Buddhist news site, five prominent Buddhist individuals were appointed as members of the "International Advisory Panel (IAP)". Each of the panelists - coming from different countries and with expertise in various disciplines - is expected to play a critical role in establishing the Buddhist Channel as a truly global, web based media platform.rn
Among key areas of development which members of the IAP can play a role in augmenting the BC as a premier Buddhist news media are:rn
(a) Media development,
(b) Current issues affecting local neighborhoods, regional areas or globally,
(c) Establishing a more effective global Buddhist network of expertise and exchange, and
(d) Establishing a means to dynamically cultivate cross cultural understanding among Buddhists from various regions.
