We will continue to broadcast documentary style episodes over the summer and we broadcast every other week on 90.3fm CKUT 7:30am EST. Not to get too salesmanship-y, but jhr is a great platform to get your radio work on the radio and in a major Canadian media outlet. Think about it. You too could be a “senior correspondent” by working on 3 episodes with jhr radio and have content on the air, on rabble and on this lovely blog. Okay, pitch over.
See you in radio land in two weeks!
