But he’s entitled to do just that – because he’s the legal owner of the St Helena Broadcasting Corporation.
It’s just that it’s not the same St Helena Broadcasting Corporation as the one that’s due to launch three new radio stations in January.
When it was first announced that the new corporation would be set up, Mike rushed out and legally registered the proposed name for himself.
As a result, the SHBC had to be formally named the St Helena Broadcasting (Guarantee) Corporation instead. But it still calls itself the SHBC and uses the web address www.shbc.sh.
Mike cheekily offers both Saint FM and the name SHBC in the deal – but not the St Helena Independent newspaper, which he plans to keep publishing.
He suggests that any buyer should have no trouble getting a broadcasting licence, given a recent government statement welcoming diversity in the media.
