1963 - CFMU started out as McMaster Radio in 1963 and was run by the BSB (Board of Student Broadcasting.) The studios were in the basement of Wentworth House.
January 1978 - CFMU began to broadcast to Hamilton and the surrounding community on the FM band. Since then, we have been voice of the campus and the community, a breeding ground for new talent, and a vital medium for relating ideas, news and views.
CFMU 93.3 is “Redefining Radio In Your Community.” We use that phrase because it re-enforces our broad relevance and reflects a revitalized commitment to our mandate. We are a public meeting place for many voiceless dimensions in our society - local cutting-edge artists and musicians, marginalized groups, multicultural families, and people with a keen social conscience.
Our broadcasts stand independent of corporations, sponsors, advertisers, and political agendas.
CFMU is comfortable with risky subjects that need attention - leadership in today’s issues and tomorrow’s art is our job. CFMU is listener-supported radio - supported by those who recognize that diversity and local programming are more crucial than ever. Yet we are more; we are also supported by those who utilize us and their community voice. Without the support of the community we serve, we will not be able to provide that community with a voice, truly the only open and independent voice in the city.
A stronger CFMU is a stronger voice for all of us.
