Programmers wanted for community radio

NANAIMO - Gabriola's community radio station puts out a call for volunteer programmers.

Gabriola’s Co-op Radio, CKGI, is searching for spoken word program proposals.

The organization is seeking submissions for shows which can include interview programs, roundtable discussions, programs representing or promoting the work of a community organization, current news, cultural, sports and political events, documentaries, advocacy, poetry, radio drama, storytelling and more.

Because Gabriola radio is a community station programmers must be volunteers.

The radio station particularly encourages residents from Gabriola Island to submit proposals. Programmers who are chosen are  expected to participate in training workshops, which will be held on the May long weekend.

Proposals must include information about the format of the program, what content it will include, a host biography, what specific production equipment is needed, experience and availability for training and a description of the program. Later in the year the radio organization is also planning on  asking for proposals for music programs.
