VOLUNTEER

From a closet in UHall broadcasting updates and tunes in between classes, to now a fully-fledged CRTC licensed Campus-Community radio station, CKXU-FM has been providing volunteer and learning opportunities to students for nearly 50 years. CKXU-FM broadcasts for 168 hours a week, year-round, with a volunteer core of over 100 members! 

No experience is required! We provide in-house training to folks 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! 

Moreover, we are also looking for folks 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 help us sort through submissions to find what’s up & coming in local and emerging music. Are you a musician yourself? Student musicians of all genres are welcome to submit music to CKXU-FM! 

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. 

If you are looking to start your journey into the radio realm, don’t hesitate to email volunteer@ckxu.com.
