Religious broadcasting networks, representing the country’s major religions, welcomed the passing yesterday of a law ensuring state support for struggling small media organizations.

Last year the bill became bogged down in the National Assembly as a result of disputes between the ruling and opposition parties.

The act supports minor media by allocating advertising sales through media representative bodies.

Ignatius Shim Jae-keon, business director of the Catholic Pyeonghwa Broadcasting Corporation, said the act will “allow small media including religious ones to survive.”
