AsiaMedia is a daily electronic publication of news about all aspects of the media in Asia, including its role in regional and national economies, societies, and political debate. It also publishes commentary by a range of journalists, scholars, and policy makers. AsiaMedia is not an institution or a foundation. “Rather, it is an intellectual exchange network headquartered at UCLA, with a geographical and intellectual reach extending from the West Coast of California to East Asia, South and Southeast Asia, and on to Australia and the Pacific Islands” (from the website).
“AsiaMedia, formerly the Asia Pacific Media Network, was founded in 1998 by Tom Plate, an experienced columnist on Asian issues and now an adjunct professor in the UCLA Department of Communications Studies, where it was published. Along with its sister publication Asia Pacific Arts, it moved to the UCLA Asia Institute in 2002 and was renamed AsiaMedia in 2004″ (website).
The publication is divided into East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Pacific Islands, and The World (latest headlines from Asia about the rest of the world). There is also an Asia Pacific Arts section. One can subscribe for free weekly updates.
