About us

28 December 2010 / by CJRU 1280AM (author)

CJRU 1280AM is Ryerson University's new campus and community multi-media hub. Our station airs a variety of programming from the university, Ryerson students, the community at large and from the NCRA Program Exchange. In March of 2016 we started broadcasting on the AM dial and we're still working towards filling our program grid with diverse and eclectic sounds and voices. Do you have a great idea for a show? Visit our Volunteer page to find out how you can get involved. If you'd just like to know what's happening at the station join our mailing list.


Our Mandate

  • To serve Ryerson students and the Ryerson community with free training, access to equipment and a media hub to share their work.
