A change in Ontario uni­ver­si­ty fund­ing rules threat­ens more than a dozen cam­pus com­mu­ni­ty sta­tions in Cana­da. Bar­ry Rooke, exec­u­tive direc­tor of the Nation­al Cam­pus and Com­mu­ni­ty Radio Asso­ci­a­tion is our guest to help explain the situation.

He explains how the struc­ture of Cana­di­an com­mu­ni­ty and col­lege radio sta­tions dif­fers from those in the U.S. and else­where, and why these dif­fer­ences make some sta­tions north of the bor­der vul­ner­a­ble to changes in the way stu­dent fees are allo­cat­ed. Bar­ry also offers advice to cam­pus sta­tions on how they can bet­ter gird them­selves to sur­vive fund­ing threats. It’s advice that’s use­ful to com­mu­ni­ty and col­lege sta­tions anywhere.
