CIUT-FM CELEBRATES 32 YEARS AS A CAMPUS COMMUNITY RADIO STATION ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 15TH, 2019
Tuesday, January 15th marks the 32nd anniversary of CIUT-FM 89.5 as a campus community radio station in Toronto. It was at 6 am on January 15th, 1987 when CIUT began to broadcast with a full FM service. From 1965 to 1986 the station could only be heard on the St. George campus of the U of T. Since the birth of this radio station there have been thousands upon thousands of U of T undergrads and members of the community at large that have volunteered their time as on air presenters, board technicians, producers, researchers, and much more. All deserve a thank you for their past and ongoing contributions.
We would also like to thank the millions of listeners who over the past 32 years made a choice to listen to CIUT-FM, those that continue to listen and to all of the new listeners that find CIUT-FM on a daily basis.
Thanks to everyone for their wonderful financial support during the past 32 years. We are still here because of your ongoing generosity We all look forward to the next 32 years and beyond.
