In an effort to increase the NCRA/ANREC's financial sustainability, and to create a way for people who want to support strong community radio in Canada to help us in our work, we are hiring someone to help develop and launch our monthly donor giving program, Friends of Community Radio.

The Friends of Community Radio Support Coordinator will work with the Executive Director to produce written and audio materials to promote the work of the NCRA/ANREC to potential donors, build a database of potential donors, help design the details of the giving program, and contact potential donors to become Friends of Community Radio.

The ideal candidate is enthusiastic, flexible, self-motivated, and has a background (or a strong interest) in both campus and community radio and fundraising. This job is funded through the government of Ontario’s Youth Employment Fund program. Application deadline is Friday, April 11th.

The founding of the NCRA's latest member, Radio Bell Island, is something to compare to a beautiful love story.

The overwhelming success of a one week special broadcast in 2011 effected the community so much, and in such a positive way, that it was decided this way to share stories, news, music, and more, had to stay. In March 2012 another special broadcast occurred that was even more successful than the last, thus firmly cementing Radio Bell Islands' roots in the community.

Shortly after it was licensed by the CRTC, fundraised and built a station, and officially began broadcasting on January 28th, 2013. For the full story, click on the title of this post.
