[creative-radio] Campus radio station attempts comeback


Campus radio station attempts comeback

WATERLOO — Since its funding was pulled after a student referendum in
February 2008, the University of Waterloo's campus community radio station
has been down . . . but not out.

And if its board of directors has its way, CKMS-FM — recently rechristened
100.3 Sound FM — may stage the comeback of a lifetime.

"We want to return the campus radio station to the great institution it
once was," reads an open letter posted on the station's website, "To allow students to have their voice heard and provide
an alternative media source to the mainsteam options in the KW."

To this end, the non-profit station's board of directors has asked the
university's student federation to approve another referendum to reinstate
funding at a reduced rate ($2.50-per-student-per-term, down from $5.50)
and are hoping for an affirmative response this Sunday.
