Myers to undertake a review of Manx Radio
The Select Committee of Tynwald on Public Service Broadcasting has engaged serial radio report writer John Myers to review Manx Radio.
John will spend time on the Isle of Man in July and the outcome of his work will be incorporated into the Committee’s report to Tynwald.
The former GMG Radio CEO has written reports on the future of local radio in the UK which was published by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in April 2009. Then in 2011, he reviewed efficiencies at BBC Radio 1, Radio 2, 1Xtra and 6Music.
His most recent report for BBC Management was on the operation of BBC Local Radio, published in February 2012.
The Tynwald resolution of 11th December 2012 is looking to reaffirm its commitment to public service broadcasting in the Isle of Man.
