CJAM Closing Doors to Public Until Further Notice

As a preventative measure to avoid transmission of the COVID-19 virus, CJAM has made the decision to close the station to the public until further notice. Programmers, other station volunteers, and guests will not be permitted to access the station during this time.

CJAM Radio will continue to broadcast on 99.1 FM and online at cjam.ca. We will still be featuring new content that is pre-recorded elsewhere. We will also be digging into our archives to bring you content from years past. We want to ensure CJAM stays on the airwaves but at a low risk to everyone involved. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to Station Manager Brady Holek via email at statcjam@gmail.com or by phone 519-253-3000 ext. 2525.
