We are about to embark on our Fall Fundraiser!

We have a goal of $100,000.00 to help keep this incredible station on the air and to continue to grow. We continue to celebrate our 35th anniversary and the height of radio! 

We have worked hard to make donating easier than ever before with a quicker more responsive donation form. This year each show will have its own peer-to-peer fundraising page. We have brought back the phone room and introduced Text-to-Donate. Also this year we can take donations by cash, cheque, stocks, and cryptocurrency!

Go to CIUT.FM/DONATE to find out more. 

CIUT-FM over the past 35 years has trained thousands of broadcasters. We want to give the next generation the skills and experience to also become great broadcasters and podcasters.

We can do that with your help. We hope you will join us and support the Sound of Your City!
Check out our updated spaces!
We are finally settling into our clean, open office and studio spaces after a long-awaited overhaul.

I'm sure you can only imagine what we have collected (and hoarded) over the past 30 years. String instruments, analog equipment, broadcast reels - you name it, we had it.

We even discovered a large printed schematic of our transmitter! We have plans to frame and display.

All of the decluttering, hauling, and building were all worth it.

A place for everything...
Yes, we STILL have our CD collection. Now it is nicely organized and categorized in cabinets. Again, many thanks to all of you who contributed to the sale of our 50k+ collection. Our current collection houses CANCON, primarily.
The vinyl collection has been dusted off and alphabetized.
We have comfy seating to welcome volunteers and guests to share in these spaces. Our mini library has archived editions of music magazines and books spanning world history.
