The CKUT fam lost one of its finest.

It is with heavy hearts that we share the tragic news of the death of our dear friend and collaborator Joni Sadler, who died of a brain aneurysm May 30th 2021.

Joni was Music Coordinator at CKUT from 2012 to 2017. Joni patiently trained and encouraged so many people spreading her love for Community and Radio. She was open to creative ideas and helped ensure that CKUT was connected to this city, both via our creative endeavours and our issues and concerns. Click here for more.

There’s also some fresh new hoodies and Funding Drive shirts from years past in there… If you’re local, you can arrange to pick up your merch from our mailbox to save on shipping.

If you’re not, we ship worldwide at affordable rates. Help support the station and look good while doing it!

What's Inside The Box?

Ever wondered what all those radio personalities look like? Well here is a CKUT roll call. We asked our programmers to let us know what the year has been like for them, what song/book/film sums it up and what they missed about not being in our studios.

We used this info for a campaign on CKUT’s Instagram and on our Facebook.

Dig into the Time Capsule.


CKUT’s 2021 virtual Funding Drive, Sowing the Seeds of Grassroots Change, came to a close on Sunday March 28th, and we’re overjoyed to let you all know that we’ve surpassed our initial goal of $25,000, and have raised over $34,000.

As always, we’re accepting donations year round, and we still have plenty of our 2021 themed t-shirts and totes left. Check out our prize draw here.

Thank you to our listeners for continuing to support grassroots, community media. Your donations and support underline our mandate of people-powered radio.

CKUT is (gradually) relaunching some activities

With financial assistance from the Secretariat and the Government of Quebec, CKUT is excited to announce a project which will allow us to gradually relaunch some activities put on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to undertaking a feasibility study for gradual studio reopening, we’ll be restarting live broadcasts of community events to help publicize and celebrate these events (ie. festivals, music events, restaurants reopening, reopening of businesses).

CKUT’s gradual reopening is funded by the Secretariat for Relations with English-speaking Quebecers. The project is supported by ELAN english language arts network.
