The Cambodia Daily going to Khmer
Kevin Doyle, the editor in chief of The Cambodia Daily, told us in our January 17 visit to the paper in Phnom Penh that it is preparing for its Khmer edition. For months, the English edition – it began in 1993 – included four Khmer pages with a resume of the main articles. It is ready to go as a Khmer edition with the same name as in English written in Khmer letters. ‘We decided to keep the same name, because it is already a popular brand, everybody knows The Cambodia Daily’, said Mr. Doyle. The newspaper was created by Bernard Krisher, a personal friend of Prince Norodom Sihanouk. Mr. Doyle answered questions related to journalism to 17 students of the journalism school of Don Bosco Sihanoukville.
