Rebelled NHK announcer purged

Following up this article..An NHK spokes man rebelled against NHK

NHK decided to close his twitter account.
This twitter account was handled by Hori Jun, an NHK announcer. He was given this account to promote his TV show “Biz spo”.
By using this account, he commented about the responsibility of NHK having concealed information after 311 and mislead people not only reporting earthquake information or charity information.
However, NHK is going to take all the regular TV shows from him and close the account with 100,000 followers after the next week.

NHK states, he’s going to move to local branches to build up his career and also train younger announcers. The account was only for his TV show “Biz spo”, it is natural to close it as the TV show ends.

Mr. Hori Jun tweeted like this below.


A lot of my senior coworkers tried to keep this account active, but it must be closed after all, because I was given this account as a caster of the TV show, Biz Spo. I’ll be with you for the rest of the 4 days. We can meet somewhere again, can’t we ?



About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
