Hong Kong media mogul Sir Run Run Shaw, who created an empire in Asia spanning movies to television, died on Tuesday at the age of 106, his company said.
Shaw died peacefully at his home in Hong Kong, surrounded by his family, his company, Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB), said in a statement.
One of Hong Kong cinema's defining figures, Shaw popularized Chinese kung fu films in the West and helped turn the former British colony into a "Hollywood East" over an 80-year career.
He set up Hong Kong's biggest free-to-air television operator, TVB, in 1967 and served as its executive chairman until 2011, helping to shape the city's media culture.
"Thanks to his wise leadership, TVB has its status today after 46 years," said TVB Executive Chairman Norman Leung. - Reuters
