That’s one of the options in the report.

Of course BBC could do BBC IoM local radio. Just like they do CI versions.

not any longer..... the bbc trust put a stop to it......

was going to be around 48 regional radio/tv areas.....local papers/radio kicked off.....now the bbc will only supply local reporters....

they wouldn't supply a ci version due to cost and the bbc trust said no more......

Simply not true. Manx Radio was not, and is not, overseen, regulated, or granted permission by the BBC either when set up or since or now.

initially it was the GPO in May 1964,  then, when we passed our own Broadcasting Act, IoMG and now the IoM Communications Commission 

uk gov. give permission for iom to broadcast......

bbc role is to oversee the signals don't bleed over other channels, without the bbc no broadcasts would take place, that inc. the emergency service system.......

Wrong again. Frequency allocation is firstly dealt with internationally by ITU, and in U.K. it was originally GPO that allocated, and now it’s OfCom. 

GPO allocated MR original frequency in May 1964, it’s second one in October 1964, and subsequently. There is an agreement between OfCom and the IoM Communications Commission about frequencies and strength of broadcasts from IoM.

Nothing to do with BBC.

BBC itself needed GPO consents and licences and now from OfCom.

Wrong again. There’s a memorandum of understanding, between OfCom and Communications Commission. Latest one is 2015.

John Moss gushing about the new Isle if Man from the air video from Dukes and how it would make a great Christmas present.

A nice free plug. Only problem seems to be that Mr Moss failed to mention he was involved in the production  by doing the voice over.

Surely it’s important to be transparent on such things?

That's disgraceful. Product placement I believe it's known as (if true), deeply unethical. He should be sacked for that.

'He should be sacked for that'.  Seriously??

How dare you suggest that someone with 20+ years service should be summarily dismissed for featuring a worthwhile news story that he has a minor stake in. These videos are great Xmas gifts, made by a local company with local talent, and are a great showcase for the IOM. So it was a newsworthy piece. Typical of the Facebook/SJW mob mentality these days that people should be fired if you don't agree with someting about them.

Stu should be barred from this thread for not disclosing his link as a colleague of Moss.
