From a closet in UHall broadcasting updates and tunes between classes. To a now a fully-fledged CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission) certified, FM radio station, broadcasting as far as Claresholm. CKXU has been providing volunteer and learning opportunities to students for nearly 50 years. CKXU 88.3 FM broadcasts for more than 168 hours per week, year-round, with a volunteer core of over 100 members.
NO EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED! We provide in house training to students who are looking to amplify themselves by hosting a radio show. With a variety of shows from second language programming, discussing topics close to your heart, political discussions, or even just spinning your favourite songs for Southern Alberta to hear, we are looking for any and all types of shows to air!
We're also always looking for students who would like to help curate the CKXU on-air sound. Looking for a brain break between classes? Why not come listen to one of the over 100 albums we have submitted to us weekly?! Music Library volunteers aid us with sorting through submissions to find those future billboard 100 hits. Are you a musician yourself? Student musicians of all genres are welcome to submit music to CKXU for on-air play, and are encouraged to take advantage of station-run initiatives!
Looking for a more casual experience? Throughout the year we have a need for volunteers to help us hold events, including our yearly three-story Haunted House which is located in the old Lethbridge Firehall. Hop on over to ckxu.com to check out what opportunities we currently have open.
