Although we're a little late to the game, it didn't feel right to leap forward in 2018 until we've had a chance to look back on all of our incredible accomplishements this past year! CFMU has come a long way, and been through some pretty noteworthy changes in 2017. With our newly designed website and logo, rebrand, video content, station renovations, high quality blogs and some of the best radio programming in the country, we're prouder than ever to be a part of Hamilton!
Here's a look back at some of our favourite moments.
CFMU was excited to welcome 2017's MSU President, Chukky Ibe with his bright smile and enthusiasm to help us accomplish all of our goals for the station this year. He was later joined by our fantastic Board of Directors and together, they make an unbeatable quartet!
March was the launch of our stunning new website which has become a host platform to a variety of multimedia content like video, blogging, podcasting, radio programming, social media and more (thanks Parallel!) We also saw Illitry perform at McMaster's LIVELab and held our annual fundraiser with a rad show at This Aint Hollywood headlining SIANspheric.
We published another episode of Full Focus with Big B Comics and launched our very first episode of Sound + Silence! As always, May was a month of transition for staff and new shows coming to the station for the summer. We had a lot of fresh faces welcomed through our doors for training both on the mic and behind-the-scenes.
It definitely started to feel like summer with our annual Live to Air in Gore Park with Kristin from I Heart Hamilton!
With the students back, it was a very busy month! We kept everyone updated with memories, photos, videos and more throughout Welcome Week while being on the ground at events welcoming first year students. We had a great time interviewing Post Malone too! We had a great booth in the student centre and gained a lot of interest in volunteers while gushing to everyone what we're all about! This month we also filmed some fun pop up clips with local Hamilton bands in the community and kicked off our Sports Director Ben's show "Marauder Morning" with a Mac Football Interview. September means Supercrawl and we had an amazing time doing interviews and broadcasting live from the AGH Annex right in the heart of James St N.
December we finally got to relax and take some vacation! But that didn't stop us from sharing updates, new shows, sports summaries and holiday guides. We couldn't keep quiet about all the incredible work that's been accomplished together this year at 93.3 and we're so excited for what's to come in 2018. Take a look at our top 9 Instagram posts, and stay tuned to help us celebrate 40 years on January 13th!
