The Phuket News adds TV to its media portfolio
PHUKET: The Phuket News has scored a major coup in its bid to offer unrivaled national media coverage to advertising clients, event promoters, and the public at large.

The newspaper’s parent company, Class Act Media, last week finalised an alliance with Capital TV, Thailand’s leading English-language television production company, adding the visual medium to the company’s rapidly expanding portfolio of media formats and services.
The tie-up means that Class Act Media can now offer event organisers national TV coverage – adding to that already offered through The Phuket News, Live 89.5 radio, and Phuket Ticketmaster.
Capital TV features on Phuket Cable 49 times per week, and on Pattaya Plus 42 times per week. They also screen nationally with ‘Destination Thailand’ on True Visions, TAN Channel, three times per week.
According to Les Nyerges, the Australian co-founder of Capital TV, “This alliance will be of great benefit to us as Class Act Media can actively represent our company at events, help us increase our Phuket-based TV content, and adds to their already significant range of media properties and services.”
The airing times in Phuket are significantly more than any other television production company can offer, and makes Class Act Media the only media outlet on Phuket to offer true national coverage.
Managing Director of Class Act Media, Simon Samaan, said: “This alliance between Class Act Media and Capital TV will take our company, including The Phuket News, to the next level, offering advertisers truly national coverage across all mediums – in print, web, radio, and TV.”
