About Us

Energy FM is the local radio station for the Isle of Man, providing music and local news for a family audience.

The format of the station is 'Chart Hit Radio' and you will hear the latest chart hits as well as great tunes from the charts of years gone by..

Energy FM is not licensed by Ofcom, but we are regulated by the Isle of Man Government Communications Commission. We feel it may be useful that we also provide the information to the Manx public, although this is not a requirement in the Isle of Man.

Outside Broadcasts

Energy FM believes that getting out of the studios and in to the community is what builds a closer relationship with our valued listeners. We aim to be live at even more events throughout the coming year and have invested in a network of broadcast ISDN lines and radio links to allow us to broadcast from virtually anywhere!

Energy FM provides live coverage of various sporting events. We also assist charities where possible with broadcasts and help businesses with product launches.



Energy FM plays a wide selection of songs from the sixties through to the present. The core of our output is music derived from the current charts and the past two years, however we feature many hits from the 80's and 90's - but you'll also hear iconic artists and songs from the past 40 years at various times.


Energy FM in the Community

A key element of Energy FM is being part of the community in the Isle of Man. We are involved in a number of charity initiatives, and will provide free announcements on local events in our "Your Isle of Man" What's On feature. This is broadcast during the daytime and weekends.
