Jay Stone Shih (left), host of KTSF Channel 26’s nightly “China Crosstalk” for several years, has left the station, according to a press release. “After five years of successful and positive collaboration KTSF and Jay have each decided to pursue other program directions,” KTSF General Manager Michael Sherman says in the release. “We appreciate all the contributions he has made to the station and the community.” The program, at 11 p.m. on weeknights, had celebrities, commentators and academics as guests, but also segments where Shih conversed with callers in Mandarin Chinese. It received numerous awards over the years. The release didn’t say what Shih, who got his start broadcasting in Taiwan, planned to do next. KTSF has launched a new Chinese call-in show at 11 p.m., “Talk Tonight,” hosted by long-time KTSF anchor and reporter Orlando Shih (right).
