All About CJSR News

CJSR-FM is a Canadian campus-based community radio station, broadcasting at 88.5 FM in Edmonton, Alberta. The CJSR studios are located in the Students' Union Building at the University of Alberta.

CJSR is a volunteer-run campus and community radio station with a stated mission, "to enlighten and entertain our audience through high quality and diverse programming that constantly challenges the status quo."

In addition to this, the CJSR News Department is mandated to cover the news, issues, events and communities, which are currently underrepresented in mainstream media.

What we broadcast will be accurate, fair, fact-checked and sourced. By law we have a duty to present issues in a truthful, balanced and fair way. This includes allowing for multiple viewpoints and perspectives, taking time to research all information before sharing it on-air, and not using our privileged position as broadcasters to further our own personal agendas.

The CJSR News Department aspires to:

  • present original, local and timely stories,
  • be driven by volunteers’ interests and efforts,
  • broadcast at least 50% local content, and
  • consistently produce programming with high production values.
