    Definitely, should have been done years ago, the station is over staffed and content is poor. It would have to adapt or fail in a competitive environment.

    Manx Radio is a vitally important part of our national identity, which the BBC is not - get rid of the licence fee & invest in visual online broadcasting of Tynwald & other important issues

    Money could be raised by having a subscription service for the MR journalism archive, as much good work is just not in the public domain. I would prefer this to be 'free to use' tho'

    This could save over £1,000,000 a year!

    Manx Radio is definitely NOT a vitally important part of our identity.

    Manx Radio should be shut down immediately.

    Public service broadcasting like Mandate. Mannin Line, etc is essential. But inherently exist things like women today, and muzak broadcasting should certainly not be paid for out of the public purse.
