CKUT is Taking Podcast Proposals!
Calling all radio and podcast enthusiasts!
Do you want to get involved in radio production? Do you have an awesome idea for a new show? Are you interested in the world of podcasting?
CKUT radio is starting an exciting new pilot project which will give 4-5 individuals (or groups) the chance to produce their own podcast. Getting airtime on CKUT’s FM grid can take a while, but creating a podcast is a fast, effective way of spreading your ideas and entering the world of media.
CKUT can offer training, access to equipment, an extensive network of contacts and a platform to distribute your podcast to a large number of listeners.
