Chapter 4 examines another type of radio talk shows in Hong Kong, what I will call the “accountability shows.” This type of phone-in programs typically involves government officials and politicians as studio guests, and is therefore particularly newsworthy. Using three episodes of an annual program as a case study, the analysis focuses on how the hosts' conversation management shaped not only the voices of the people expressed but also the performance of the attending official.
