St Helena : CLOSURE OF SAINT FM
Submitted by Saint Helena Herald (Public Relations Information Office) 22.12.2012 (Article Archived on 05.01.2013)

CLOSURE OF SAINT FM


 


The UK Government and SHG value the diversity of media and opinion in St Helena, just as in other Overseas Territories, and we recognise Saint FMís contribution to informing the public and stimulating public debate, as well as its entertainment value.


 


It is therefore a matter of regret that Mr Olsson has chosen to close down his radio station, especially at Christmas time, but of course that is clearly a commercial decision for him. Far less clear is why Mr Olsson is making such bizarre comments in an effort to justify his decision to terminate Saint FM just days before Christmas - but thatís a matter for Mr. Olsson, not a matter for SHG or the UK Government. However, Mr Olssonís decision to close his radio station does serve to highlight the need for media sustainability, diversity and choice on St Helena.
