National broadcaster ready to cover election

Manx Radio's election coverage reaches a climax tonight when the station's results programme, likely to span six hours or more, takes to the air.

All the results will be broadcast live, as they are declared, with reporters posted at each of the 15 constituency 'counts' up and down the Isle of Man.

A panel of expert guests is lined-up to take part in a studio debate, which will be hosted by Beth Espey and Roger Watterson.

They will be reflecting on the look of the next House of Keys, as it emerges during the course of the evening.

Manx Radio's director of programming and content Marc Tyley (pictured) says it's a complex technical undertaking, drawing on all the station's resources (listen to audio file below):

The election night programme, including hourly news bulletins, begins after the news at 6.15 pm.
