CNC

CNC is Cambodia’s first 24h/7 national news channel broadcasting from Phnom Penh. It is a free-to-air terrestrial television channel that can also be broadcasted by satellite with a paid subscription.

CNC was launched in 2012 by CBS as CTN’s second sister company, it is aimed at “helping the government broadcast the progress and the nation’s development”. Its most popular programs are the News evening prime time.

CNC covers a majority of Cambodian provinces and has a bit less than 2% of the total TV audience shares in Cambodia [CMRD, 2015]. Together with CTN, CTN International and CNC, MyTV belongs to the Cambodian Broadcasting Service (CBS), incorporated with the Ministry of Commerce in 2003.

The Cambodian media landscape counts at least two new outlets, a TV and a newspaper. Since the former started its daily activity and the latter its broadcasting in 2015, MOM decided not to include as most relevant medium. With less than a year of existence, the audience shares would not be representative of their popularity.

It can be highlighted, however, that their growth is taking place rapidly and their strategy seems more aggressive than the existing media on the market. Both are now hiring journalists and newsroom staffs from existing newsrooms, heightening the competition on both TV and print sectors, which are already highly concentrated.
