On Air The Morning Show Marc Tyley | 9:30am - Noon

News coverage in new hands

Coverage of the Isle of Man on ITV regional news is in the hands of Granada from today.

The Island's population is a small percentage of Granada's audience, but coming under the Granada news umbrella was widely seen as the best option, after Border TV's take-over by TyneTees, which is based in the north-east of England.

Granada's making a big fuss of the Isle of Man today, with its flagship teatime news programme Granada Reports being co-presented live from Douglas.

The show will include a guide to the Island by weatherman Fred Talbot, a feature on basking sharks and a spotlight on the success of Manx cyclist Mark Cavendish in the Tour de France.
