I’ve got a great idea for a show. How do I get on the air?
Email us at info.cjamfm@gmail. com to book an orientation session, or follow us on social media to find out when the next group session is. You’ll learn about all the ins-and-outs of CJAM & campus/community radio so you can be ready to create fun, exciting shows. If you’re completely new to radio or podcasting, that’s cool!

CJAM 99.1 FM is always keen to take on new volunteers, but be aware that volunteering your time at a 24/7 radio station means being on-time to your live show, respecting staff time, and making sure you understand the nuances of how a station of approximately 150 volunteers runs. While we do have 3 paid staff members (sometimes more if we’re lucky enough to have a grant employee with us), please respect staff time by refraining from contacting us through social media, especially outside of office hours. If it’s an emergency, you’ll have our #’s on hand. If not, make a specific appointment so we can be sure to give you our full attention.
