Prosecutors detained a top Chinese news anchor shortly before a nightly broadcast, state media reported, as authorities extend anti-corruption efforts deeper into the country's media industry.Rui Chenggang, the popular host of financial news programs on China Central Television (CCTV), was taken away from his studio Friday, ruling Communist Party mouthpiece the People's Daily said on its Twitter account Saturday night. Rui's detention, along with the network's vice director of financial news Li Yong, comes a little more than a month after officials announced an investigation into suspected bribery by his boss, CCTV's advertising director and director-general of its finance and economics channel Guo Zhenxi.
