Open Call for Pitches –
As part of a Community Radio Fund of Canada grant, CJMP News is able to offer the chance for independent producers to pitch their ideas and turn them into radio features that will air on CJMP News on-air at 90.1FM and online at cjmp.ca
Pitches should include the story idea, who you would interview and your interest or experience in media production.
We value stories that reflect CJMP’s mission: As a non-profit alternative to mainstream media, we engage, educate, entertain, challenge, and provide community access to the airwaves.”
We will then work with you to develop your idea and produce your piece. Finished pieces will be paid $50 per minute of produced audio and stories should be between 4-6 minutes.
Please send a current resume along with your pitch to email@example.com
Deadline to send pitches is July 11, 2016

I read poetry I’ve written and allow others in the community to come in to read their poetry.
I try to play as much Canadian music as I can i.e. Joni Mitchell, Crash Test Dummies, Valdy, Tragically hip, Leonard Cohen.
I talk about Anarchy, local politics and most events in Powell River.
Underpants events with money raised going to B.C. Cancer Society

The Tony Colton Show Starring Nicholas Simons is an hour-long show where politics finally meets ornithology, opera, water conservation and tips for good posture. We’ll play music, interview interesting guests and really talk about the weather. Join us on what we hope to be a regular and timeless journey.

Radio, that lets you do the dishes.
The Powell River Community Radio Society (PRCRS), a local volunteer-run non-profit organization operating CJMP 90.1FM since 2010. As a community media organization, we primarily engage listeners both on the radio and online at where we live-stream 24/7 to a world-wide audience. We are working hard to further improve our programming with new shows like CJMP News (Fridays Noon-1PM), and to expanding our signal’s reach (our on-going ‘Top the Tower’ campaign at http://cjmp.ca/15k), while increasing our memberships and sponsorships, as we seek to attain financial sustainability.
We were recently awarded grants that have allowed us to hire a few part-time employees, and as such are in the position right now to offer local community/non-profit organizations a free ‘evergreen’ (unchanging) pre-recorded Public Service Announcements of 15 to 30 seconds in length. All you need to do is come up with a message related to your organization that you want to share to the public, and we will record your message with (or for) you.
There are tips, a sample and an easy form to fill out at http://cjmp.ca/psa that will get the wheels turning. Please also feel free to share any time-sensitive community event with me as well by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or filling out the handy event form (that will ensure you have the information we need) at http://cjmp.ca/submit.
Our programming and basic operations being volunteer-based, we rely heavily on community support, and we also give back so much to the community. CJMP Powell River Community Radio has something for everyone, as you can see from our program schedule (http://cjmp.ca/schedule), and offers our local audience the chance to voice opinions and to broadcast to the listening public, that which is valuable to us, without relying on advertisements and ‘bottom-line’ mainstream appeal. We were created and maintain our CRTC licence as an alternative to mass media, after all.
CJMP encourages your community organization to engage with us first of all, as a listener, with the hope that you will see the value in supporting us as individual sustaining members for as little as $5 per month (http://cjmp.ca/sustain ), as organizational sponsors (at a sharp discount on business rates — see http://cjmp.ca/sponsor), and as content contributors, as a programmer on your own show, as a guest on other programs, or as a volunteer on any of the many tasks we need done.
Thank you, and hope to hear from you regarding the free PSA!
