>>> CHRW News, Sports and Spoken Word Department.


94.9 CHRW is committed to raising the awareness of community and student issues that affect London or Western on local, provincial, federal and international levels.

As News, Sports & Spoken Word Director, Edward von Aderkas oversees the volunteer driven newsroom, including students in The Graduate Program in Journalism at Western. Volunteers are always welcome at CHRW. You don't have to be a student at UWO, there's no experience necessary, just an open mind and a little spare time.volunteer reading the news


94.9 CHRW News airs every weekday at 5pm. A team of volunteer newscasters research, write and present the daily newscast which is released as a podcast and posted on the CHRW News and Spoken Word blog.

Curently CHRW goes live to air with coverage of Mustangs football, hockey and basketball. You can listen back to previous sports broadcast online. There are also opportunities to contribute to CHRW's sports talk shows and interview athletes from around London and beyond. CHRW broadcasts every Mustangs football game - from the season opener until playoffs and this is why CHRW is known as the Official Voice of the Western Mustangs.

Spoken Word
CHRW talk shows explore issues affecting Londeners and cover topics not dealt with by the mainstream media. Every week day from 11am until noon there is a live talk hour with a rotating group of hosts covering everything from London's arts scene to gender equality or science fiction. Check out the descriptions of CHRW talk shows online and subscribe to some of the Spoken Word podcasts. Big Purple Couch live form the UCC atrium

Volunteers in the News, Sports & Spoken Word Department have great opportunities to get on the air. You can become newscasters, sportscasters, live sports play-by-play commentators, reporters, interviewers, editors, show producers, and more.

You will be trained in all areas of operations of the station - On air, News and Sports, Production,
Music and Promotions and Television production. But we can only take you so far - your imagination and commitment will take you the rest of the way. For more information about the training available visit the Training Page.

Just stop by the station during business hours, or contact Edward von Aderkas and he'll give
you all the information you need.  94.9 CHRW is run almost exclusively by volunteers and
we are always looking for new people looking to gain experience.
