A correspondent or on-the-scene reporter is a journalist or commentator, an agent who contributes reports to a newspaper, or radio or television news, or another type of company, from a remote, often distant, location …The term correspondent refers to the original practice of filing news reports via postal letter.


As part of Zachary Gough’s artist residency presented in collaboration between CHMA and Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre, we are seeking engaged volunteers to participate in a special local news and issues task force during the month of January.  These correspondents will be introduced to CHMA and trained in all skills necessary to create balanced and critical news around issues pertaining to the Sackville community and the surrounding region.  We are specifically looking for people who already have strong connections to diverse groups around town and an understanding of the issues that matter to those groups.


Together, and lead by Zach, the correspondents will create a short series of special news broadcasts designed to get new voices on CHMA, and to contribute to a local dialogue about the social, environmental, political and economic issues that matter to the citizens of Sackville.
