Frankie Lam No Longer ATV’s Vice President

In December 2019, ex-TVB actor Frankie Lam (林文龍) announced that he will be serving as Asia Television’s Vice President. His first job as VP was the 2019 Miss Asia Pageant finals, which were held on December 29, 2019.

As VP, Frankie was responsible for managing ATV’s creative productions, offering insight and creative strategies to propel ATV programming to the competitive entertainment market. For decades, ATV struggled to stay afloat and compete with its main rival, TVB. After numerous executive changes, ATV finally lost its battle in the TV race, losing its free-to-air license on April 1, 2016. It was revived in 2019 as an OTT service provider.

Picking up the job as VP for a newly rebranded ATV, Frankie knew he had to be prepared. However, earlier this year, Frankie quietly transitioned his role from being ATV’s Vice President to being the Vice President of ATV’s sister company, Asia Momentum Media (AMM).

In a recent interview, Frankie finally explained why he decided to let go of his position as ATV’s VP. “My first job with ATV was during the Miss Asia finals. At the time, I was announced to be ATV’s VP. However, before our boss purchased ATV, many changes occurred, including issues with debt. I told the boss that I didn’t want to be involved with these things, so he arranged me to manage the sister company. Right now, all online production is managed by team. It has nothing to do with ATV.”

    As much as I enjoyed watching Frankie in certain TV series, I really doubt he has any management or administrative capabilities, having only been an onscreen actor for all these years……..He is probably too far off from having any VP-level of commercial skills, so I think he was probably recruited for his ‘name’ only, and he doesn’t really have a VP-level job…………..He’s probably not that intelligent off screen either.

      @yuaida I don’t know about Frankie’s intelligence (as I think you have no clue to it either). but you I know are dumb as sh*t. Many actors, “ having only been an onscreen actor for all these years”, have the knowledge and expertise of the industry thus can transition to management. But your intelligence and prejudice cannot understand simple things as this.

    I don’t even understand why ATV is still around filled with debts and money issues, not sure what are they trying to save the station for it’s a hopeless future.

    I’m surprised that atv is still around… What shows are they even producing and airing?? And they have another company too? Seriously how is atv not a cash sink? People still place ads there? Frankie should just keep filming dramas
