It’s a busy time around here as we gear up for the annual Homelessness Marathon at CKUT… In addition to that, I’ve got a couple other projects on the go that are keeping me on my toes this week. Hectic times like these call for extra coffee – I’ve downed three cups so far this morning and am already needing more.
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
Tomorrow marks the 15th annual Homelessness Marathon: a yearly overnight coast to coast radio broadcast to raise awareness of homelessness and the issues that contribute to it. This broadcast started a decade and a half ago right here at CKUT and has grown to be a full-on, national initiative produced collaboratively by a wide range of stations across Canada. Rather than a traditional monetary fundraiser, the Marathon aims to raise awareness about housing issues and give a platform for those impacted to share their stories. Stream the whole thing live at ckut.ca from5pm on February 22nd – 7am on February 23rd, and check out the Facebook event for more info on what you’ll hear during the broadcast.
