The Homelessness Marathon, a radio broadcast featuring voices and stories from the homeless in multiple communities, will be airing for its 14th year and CHMA will be presenting all 14 hours of this year’s marathon. Tune in tonight at 6PM (AST) for the beginning of the marathon which will air until 8AM (AST) tomorrow morning (Wednesday, February 24). If you are unable to tune in for the beginning you will have plenty of time to catch other portions of the marathon.

Many thanks to the staff of CIVL community radio in Abbotsford, BC for coordinating this year’s marathon.

Regular CHMA programming during this time period will be pre-empted, but the normal Tuesday night/Wednesday morning schedule will return next week.

Each year CHMA throws a programmers and volunteers party to show how much we appreciate all the hard work they put into their radio shows. Here’s a few photos of the folksĀ behind the microphones at your campus and community radio station showing off their gold record awards. Photos taken by lovely and talented photographer Kim McMillan.
