Looking for Radio Show Hosts 

Here and Again Inc have been working hard this year building WRWO 94.5 FMLP - Ottawa’s Community Radio Station and are nearing completion. The radio station will be housed in Wallace Hall. There are many people who share our vision and who have expressed an interest in a radio show of their own. They are now at the point where they are selecting content for the radio station and are looking for individuals who would like to contribute ideas. All interested parties should send a short 10-20-minute demo to in MP3 format by the 20th of January 2017 and a description of the type of show that you are interested in making and the frequency of original material that you are considering contributing i.e. 5 days per week, once per month or occasionally. Regular shows more than once per week please include in writing two weeks worth of general show ideas. Also, if you have more than one idea for a show please submit a demo for each regular show idea. If you need technical help you can e-mail the address above. A short list of demos will be made by the end of January and they will contact those individuals for a full show recording and possible interview.
