Vale KC Fong – Pioneer of Hong Kong Television

Mr. Fong Kin Chuen, also known as KC Fong, a visionary engineer who helped establish and modernise Hong Kong’s television broadcasting industry, passed away on May 28, 2024, at the age of 86.

Born in 1938, Mr. Fong dedicated his career to advancing television technology in Hong Kong. In 1966, at the age of 28, he joined the team that designed and built the infrastructure for Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB), the city’s first free-to-air commercial television station. Over the next two decades, he played a crucial role in upgrading TVB’s technical capabilities and infrastructure.

Later in his career, Mr. Fong brought his expertise to Asia Television Limited (ATV), Hong Kong’s second terrestrial broadcaster. He was instrumental in spearheading ATV’s transition to digital terrestrial television (DTT) technology in the 2000s, ensuring a smooth migration from analogue broadcasting.

“Mr. Fong was a true pioneer who shaped the foundations of Hong Kong’s television industry,” said a former TVB executive. “His vision and technical mastery were vital in modernizing our broadcasting networks and paving the way for the digital age. The engineers he mentored went on to become leaders in the field.”

Beyond his work at TVB and ATV, Mr. Fong was deeply committed to nurturing the next generation of television professionals. Many of the industry’s most experienced technicians and managers received their start under his guidance during his 58-year career.

According to Mr Raymond Mo, founder and CEO of technology supplier, Mediatech, “The passing of Mr. Fong is a tremendous loss for all of us, but his spirit and contributions will forever inspire us to move forward.”
