#30for30 Support Independent Radio | #30pour30 Soutien Radio Independente

CHUO is your community radio and we exist through the generous support of our community. Help us raise $30,000 in celebration of our 30th year on the FM dial! We do more that make radio around here! Most recently we have made some pretty big moves. We launched a daily morning drive time program, The Morning Shift - Ottawa-Gatineau's only Hip Hop morning show! We established a NEWS department to deliver daily headlines in French and English which continues to grow with 5 paid staff reporters (with the support of LJI) and 8 active volunteer contributors. In partnership with BEING Studio, we created a series of podcasts called SPEAK featuring the stories of artists with developmental disabilities. CIMA (Centre for Independent Media & the Arts/Centre pour les Arts et Medias independents) is a not for profit social enterprise that offers multimedia promotions, civic media training, houses an independent FM radio station and a podcast network! We are a bilingual organization that prioritizes under-represented voices and communities. Our core values are leadership, integrity, community, diversity, culture and access. Across our organization, we’re building a workplace where collaboration is essential, diverse voices are heard, and inclusion is the key to our success. We are a bilingual organization that prioritizes under-represented voices and communities. Our programming reflects our core values of leadership, integrity, community, diversity, culture and access. We believe in elevating voices by offering professional broadcast experiences - with well defined roles, working as a team, providing hands on training and support. CHUO 89.1 FM provides hyper-local, independent and diverse programming unparalleled in the city. CHUO 89.1 FM is participatory, which means anyone can sign up and learn about all aspects of broadcasting and have the opportunity to put this training into practice via 89.1 FM. We believe elevating marginalized voices means more than providing a space. It means getting those voices heard by meeting our audience where they are, we create radio that is highly listenable, well produced and well presented. We use block programming to encourage longer tune in times every day.
