CJSW 90.9 FM is Calgary’s only campus & community radio station and one of Calgary’s only independent media outlets.
Several staff and over 300 volunteers work to program a 24/7 radio broadcast that features over 110 shows in more than 10 languages. CJSW takes pride in our mandate to bring diverse voices from throughout the Calgary and area community to speak with passion about issues that may not get mainstream exposure.
We increase the profile of local, independent artists and organizations by dropping their tracks, hosting them on our programs, and promoting their events. We tell stories that you won’t hear anywhere else, and we strengthen relationships among the arts, business, intellectual, and cultural communities and the audiences they are looking to reach.
CJSW 90.9 FM is based at the University of Calgary, and is a non-profit society. CJSW broadcasts music, spoken word and multicultural programming on 90.9 FM and online at cjsw.com.
CJSW 90.9 FM broadcasts out of Moh’kins’tsis (Calgary, AB) at the University of Calgary campus radio station located on Treaty 7 land. CJSW would like to acknowledge the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprised of the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations). The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III. CJSW would also like to note that the University of Calgary is situated on land adjacent to where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, and that the traditional Blackfoot name of this place is “Moh’kins’tsis”, which we now call the City of Calgary.
