Shin Min Daily News (Chinese: 新明日报; pinyin: Xīnmín Rìbào) is a Singapore Chinese-language afternoon newspaper currently published by Singapore Press Holdings (SPH). First started on 18 March 1967, by Singapore businessman Liang Runzhi (梁潤之) and the renowned Hong Kong writer Louis Cha as an offshoot of Hong Kong's Ming Pao, it featured exclusive serializations of some of Cha's wuxia novels in its early days. In the early 1980s, Cha sold his shares in the paper after the Singapore government ruled that foreigners could only hold up to 3% of shares in locally based papers.
