HONG KONG -- China's state-backed newspapers in Hong Kong, Wen Wei Po and Ta Kung Pao, announced on Tuesday that they are to merge, in order to enhance synergies in an increasingly challenging media landscape.

     The two companies will continue to publish their own newspapers in Hong Kong, but will pull editorial and technical resources together to strengthen the development of new media. Jiang Zaizhong, chairman of Ta Kung Pao, will become president of the new group, which will be known as Hong Kong Ta Kung Wen Wei Media Group.
