美国抗疫日记4月3日:永不打烊的美南新闻

作者:李蔚华,美南报业电视集团发行人

今晨我依旧在印报车间从印刷工人手中拿到今天出版的美南日报中英文版,回到办公室座位,看到电脑银幕上播放的美南电视节目,心中顿时感慨万千,泪水憯然涌出。回想到孩童时代伴随在父亲身旁,在昏暗的灯光下和他同看一份报纸,数十载岁月匆匆消失,今晨我手中紧握住这份我们一手创办的媒体,岂是命运之安排。

为站在最前线的工作伙伴鼓掌

我要非常感激这段时间新冠疫情发生以来,仍然坚守在岗位上继续努力的同事们,在前线采访的记者,在编辑台上翻译排版的编辑,守在电脑前收发版面的员工,美工台上编辑电视画面的美工同仁,电视台上现场直播的主播导播,立即上缐的美南新闻网站……






每天子夜十二时编辑台上完成之电子档案送到印刷厂,经过制铝版上油墨,印刷工人从每日凌晨开始上工,一直到清晨把每天最新的中英文版美南日报,从输送带上印制出来,再由送报员同仁把当天日报送到广大读者手中,四十年来从未中断,美南新闻无愧是永不打烊每周七天二十四小时开放的媒体事业。

今天新冠病毒之扩散,全球已经超过一百万人,美国全国百分之二十五的中小企业已经关闭,诸多大国还在相互指责,我们这些平民百姓是觉醒时刻了。
我们非常欣幸在国家最艰难之时刻,美南传媒集团还有这么多工作伙伴,不惧本人之安危,继续为人民服务,我们相信在未来的日子𥚃,你们大家的牺牲奉献定可留下历史的记录。

Our Business Never Closes – Salute To My Co-Workers

This morning as usual, I walked into our press room and picked up a fresh copy of our Southern Daily Newspaper. I went back to my office and watched our TV programs and website. I felt so moved and touched and tears came to my face.

It was long time ago, but I still remember when I was a just a kid, I slept next to my dad and shared a newspaper with him every night. Even in my teenage years, I felt how powerful the media was. Many years later , we went into the newspaper media business. Maybe this is how one’s destiny is decreed.

We are here now and so graceful and appreciative of all my co-workers including editors, reporters, TV producers, anchormen, pressman, digital editors and delivery men. Because of your sacrifice and courage, millions of people can still read our daily newspaper getting news from our newspapers, TV station and websites.

As of today, more than one million people around the world have already contracted the Coronavirus and twenty-five percent of all businesses have closed. We are still facing very serious challenges right now. As a media business, we are so proud we will still continue to hold our position and do our very best for the people we love.

I also wanted to tell my colleagues that because of your great contributions, history will mark down a page for you. I also want to let you know Southern News Group is still open 7 days a week, 24-hour a day because we need to serve our nation, our readers and our viewers.

United we say, God bless America.
