Are you curious about the world of radio broadcasting and interested in exploring it? Are you creative, dedicated, and passionate? Are you interested in building skills and contributing to your local independent radio station? If this resonates with you, CKCU FM might be the place for you!

Did you know that CKCU is almost entirely volunteer-driven? The voices and content on the airwaves, the behind-the-scenes production, the folks representing the station at community events —none of it would happen without the help of our many wonderful volunteers.

CKCU strives to create and air programming that reflects our community and audience. We care about diversity and creating space for voices, languages, and music you don’t hear on mainstream/commercial radio. We aim to support our community by being a place to contribute to its voice and reflect our participants and listeners. If you’re curious about radio, CKCU is where you want to be.

What if I don’t have any experience?

That’s okay! We offer training to help people learn new skills and gain experience.

Do I need to be a student?

Although having students involved at CKCU is important to us as we’re located on Carleton University’s campus, you don’t have to be a student to volunteer. CKCU is a campus-community radio station made possible by a variety of creative, passionate, dedicated enthusiasts in the Ottawa-Gatineau region and beyond. While we are located at Carleton University, anyone is welcome to express interest in becoming a potential CKCU FM volunteer!

How do I express interest in getting involved?

To express your interest in getting involved, email our Volunteer & Community Manager, Lindsay, at lindsay.morrison@ckcufm.com. She will be happy to communicate with you further about it.
