CKMS News – 2021-02-22 – What’s behind the blank front pages?

Host: Ivan Angelovski

Early February, frontpages of around 100 newspapers in Canada went blank, starting the campaign by News Media Canada called “Disappearing Headlines,” calling for regulation of Google and Facebook in this country. Basically, they are asking the politicians to take money from internet giants and give it to them. 

Today we’re talking with Dwayne Winseck, Professor at the School of Journalism and Communication at Carleton university in Ottawa, about what’s behind the blank front pages, do Canadian publishers have the right to protest against Google and Facebook, and does anyone have a public interest in mind?

CKMS News – 2021-02-22 – Waterloo Region Weekly Roundup

Host: Melissa Bowman

In this week’s episode, we will once again update on some of the affordable housing issues that local municipalities are involved in. The Region of Waterloo council shared an update about where things currently stand since approving the closure of the 5 regionally-operated children’s centres. 

Also, communities that are racialized and/or marginalized have been impacted more deeply by this pandemic. I’ll share an update from a recent regional council public health board meeting that discussed this issue and some of the plans stemming from that meeting.

CKMS News – 2021-02-18 – Engaging locally on climate action (part 2)

Host: Shalaka Jadhav

Climate action is often reported and engaged with at the national and international scale, but often, the local organizing efforts are lesser known.  50×30 Waterloo Region is a grassroots, community-led campaign advocating for the need for Waterloo Region to commit to a 50 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, in line with the imperatives of climate science and centering social justice and well-being.

For this segment, I will be in conversation with four community members:

  • Kai Reimer-Watts, a climate justice organizer;
  • Stephanie Goertz, a volunteer with the 50x30WR campaign;
  • Megan Ruttan, a climate justice organizer, and Fridays for Future Waterloo Region organizer, and 
  • Andres Fuentes, who has engaged on climate work locally and globally for over 10 years.

In part two of this two-part series, we’ll talk about the history of organizing in the Region that the campaign is building on, the importance of building solidarity, and what a just climate future could look like, in the Region.

To learn more about 50×30, check out their website, including their petition to Regional Council.

Upcoming events include 50×30 Faith, to engage local faith communities on climate justice on Monday February 22nd, at 7:00pm EST.  

If you’re interested engaging with the campaign, create your own 2-minute 50×30 video, take the 50×30 pledge as an organization, business and local group, or browse through the Climate Champion Communications Toolkit to build your own local climate action journey.

If you’d like to learn more about other cities working towards 50×30, consider the work of C40 Cities, including Vancouver, and Halifax.

This program is a part of the “Local Journalism Initiative” grant program and is funded by the Community Radio Fund of Canada, the Government of Canada, and the CKMS Newsroom.

4m49s DJs Val Scheer and Rob Curwain introduce themselves and their shows; how they got their start into radio; the courses at Fanshawe College and Niagara College; discussing home production equipment and techniques, and comparing it to the college’s equipment; transferrable skills?

25m37s The differences between commercial radio and Community Radio: So many shows! So much freedom! The mandate for Community Radio is to provide an alternative to commercial radio. But the skills are transferrable, working at CKMS helps hone the craft for a commercial radio career. Val and Rob both have “The Voice” of professional announcers — how did they get it? Mostly it comes from yourself, but in the broadcast course people will point out voice problems. Having “The Voice” isn’t needed on Community Radio, we’re more interested in what you have to say than in how you say it.

CKMS News – 2021-02-15 – Explaining Reddit’s WallStreetBets

Host: Ivan Angelovski

In January, a group of people, small stock market investors, members of a Reddit forum called WallStreetBets, got organized and decided to stick it to the man. That’s, at least, what this David Vs. Goliath narrative is. 

However, things are not so black and white. They are mostly grey, and that’s what we’re talking about today with David Cimon, assistant professor of finance at the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University. 

Hopefully, after this conversation, things will be much clearer.
