Last year, the Ontario government announced they were changing the way student fees were collected.
As a result, CFMU lost a third of its funding.
This loss threatens our ability to meet our mandate - and, quite possibly, our existence in general. While the government's changes are temporarily stayed, there are no guarantees that it will be a lasting reprieve. It also doesn't change the fact our current budget took a significant hit.
Luckily, CFMU supporters and listeners can help. We know you're out there - in fact, we've seen that our listener numbers continue to increase significantly every year.
93.3 CFMU FM is listener-supported, campus-based community radio. While we broadcast to the greater Hamilton area, this website takes our programming around the world. Our programs are produced and hosted by volunteers from the community - by people like yourself. We address local issues, promote local and under-represented music, and feature unique voices. We give voice to those who need it.
Our website, cfmu.ca, is more than community radio. It's a community information hub, providing an outlet for new music, new voices, and new ideas, expressed through audio, the written word, and video.
