About changanjie.info

What’s in a name? The name Chang’anjie (长安街) should not be unfamiliar with China watchers or residents. Named after Beijing’s most important boulevard, Chang’an Avenue, it is also home to a lot of media / communication-related organisations in China, namely (from west to east):

  • China Radio International
  • China Central Television (Colour TV Centre)
  • China National Radio
  • State Administration of Press, Publishing, Radio, Film and Television
  • Central Broadcasting University
  • Telecommunications Building
  • Radio Beijing
  • China Central Television (new headquarters, just slightly off the main avenue)
  • Beijing Television
  • Communication University of China

This makes it alone the “media avenue” of the Chinese capital, and it is probably one of the more fitting names for this site.
