UFV Student & CIVL Volunteer Hired onto CHWK News Team

Chilliwack has a new voice for weekend news on FM radio, and her name is Alicia Williams!

The third year UFV fine arts and communications student got involved in radio by hosting Mood Swings on in March of 2010.

Maybe you heard her this past weekend, however, doing regular news updates on Saturday and Sunday mornings through the the mid-afternoon on commercial radio for the very first time!

In November, Williams officially became a part of the team at The Hawk 89.5 FM in Chilliwack as a weekend news personality. Williams has been more than just a show host on CIVL, winning a 2011 National Community and Campus Radio Association (NCRA) Award Honourable Mention for Music Programming based on the exclusively Female Content edition of Mood Swings.

She also served as CIVL’s Program Assistant, Music Librarian, and Promotions Coordinator before trying her hand at news for the first time earlier in November. NCRA Executive Director, Shelley Robinson, says “It’s amazing to see someone’s passion for radio get recognized by both a local community and commercial station, and have a chance to reach even more listeners.”

Included among Williams’ other accomplishments at CIVL are her experience as Chair of the Programming Committee, responsible for approving new programs and reviewing concurrent content.

She also participated in CIVL’s national news broadcast of Groundwire, an NCRA project that reaches 30-40 stations across the country every other week. “We are glad to see a dedicated volunteer recognized in the job market,” says CIVL President Dustin Ellis. “Creating broadcast skills and experience is a big part of what we do, and Alicia has helped make this possible for others while making the most of our organization.” Despite the new job, Alicia will read daily news on CIVL at least until the end of this semester.

RE: CIVL Radio Campaign Focus Group
nike air jordan 6
As you may already know, CIVL Radio will be holding a referendum to increase student fees at the end of March. Our previous campaign and referendum in December was unsuccessful by only 66 out of 854 votes (a margin of 7%). We realize that our posters and advertising for the referendum is in need of improvement. With that in mind, we hope to improve our campaign strategy and hold a successful second referendum.

With an increased budget, CIVL Radio will be able to provide better services for students including:

– Hire more staff members

– Provide incentives for volunteers and students

– Host more events on campus and in the community

– Sponsor community projects/ non-profit organizations

– Invest in new technology and maintain our current equipment

– Fund a new tower with range from Cloverdale to Hope
nike 95 air max
– Hold more contests and give away prizes

– Create a richer environment on campus and more experiences for students

We will be hosting an open campaign meeting on February 22th at 4:30 pm to generate support for our referendum and to hear any feedback and suggestions. We will meet at CIVL Radio and proceed to a meeting room.
