Channel M closes

Local TV station for Manchester, Channel M, has ceased broadcasting.

The GMG station had been running for 12 years, providing news and local interest programming for the Greater Manchester area. Since 2010 the Freeview channel had not been producing original programming, focusing instead on local archive material, networked news and traffic. It ceased broadcasting completely last night (Monday 16 April 2012).
