Deadline for responses to consultation on changes to ITV regional news service 12 November 2008

The Communications Commission would like to remind residents that we are inviting responses, by Friday 21 November 2008, to our consultation paper on proposals to change ITV’s regional news coverage of the Isle of Man.

Hon Adrian Earnshaw MHK, Chairman of the Communications Commission said:

“On behalf of the Commission, I would like to thank all who have taken the time to respond to the consultation. I would encourage those that have yet to respond to contact the Commission with your views on whether the Isle of Man and its viewers would be better served by being part of the new ITV Tyne Tees & Border news region or by being part of ITV Granada.”

Responses will inform the Commission’s response to Ofcom’s Second Public Service Broadcasting Review. Ofcom is the UK Office of Communications which licenses and regulates ITV. Any changes to ITV’s regional service agreed by Ofcom will be reflected in the appropriate ITV regional licence.

The consultation can be viewed online at Ofcom is expected to make its decision on proposed changes to ITV’s regional news and to publish a final statement in early 2009.
