Shelley first heard community radio when she moved to Halifax at 16 and stumbled across CKDU on the FM dial. Three years later she and a friend had a show early on Wednesday mornings called "Anecdotal Evidence". Eight years after that, she was Station Coordinator there and joined the Board of the NCRA. She has also worked in community media in Northern Ireland (Citywide), Afghanistan (Radio Rabia Balkhi) and Rwanda (Radio Salus). Now she's thrilled to be back in Canada, working with the NCRA and its amazing members.
Gunargie has been dedicated to community and campus radio since 1989 and attributes her knowledge to her guests and her community. The Resonating Reconciliation project was originally her idea and she helped develop the proposal. She will be working from Vancouver four days a week and email is the best way to reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com.
