CKCU-FM “Bringing Communities to Life through News, Media, & Radio!”

Ottawa-Gatineau’s independent campus-community broadcaster; enriching lives through championing the discovery of music and communities beyond the mainstream since 1975. 

By donating to CKCU you are keeping community radio strong, you strengthen Ottawa’s cultural scene. CKCU supports and promotes local music, local festivals, local theatre, local sports, and local events.  We interview Ottawa area authors, artists, musicians, politicians, charities and community organizations.  We review local restaurants, galleries, exhibitions, and theatre productions.  We talk about issues important to our community, and we feature music made in our community. Without CKCU FM, many of these voices would not be heard.  By donating, you help build a stronger community here in Ottawa and beyond.
