(30 HOURS/WEEK / 8 WEEKS / $15.75/HOUR / June 10 to August 2 2019)

In accordance with a Canada Summer Jobs grant towards hiring registered and continuing students, CFRU 93.3 FM at the University of Guelph is seeking an Online Content Coordinator.

CFRU is a volunteer-driven campus and community radio station, committed to broadcasting high quality, innovative, and entertaining music and spoken word programming, which serves as a distinct alternative to other available radio services.

Nature and scope:

The Online Content Coordinator will work with CFRU’s Tech Coordinator in order to prepare secondary audio streams (24hr online streaming playlists) for use in on-campus and local businesses. Each audio-stream will be a curated collection of our music programs, with any advertising or references to date-specific events edited out, in order to remain evergreen. Each audio stream will represent a different genre, so that local businesses can choose to air the audio stream that best suits their atmosphere. The Online Content Coordinator will learn how to use audio editing software (i.e. Adobe Audition), in order to put together the audio streams.


Working with CFRU’s Tech Coordinator, the Online Content Coordinator will:

– listen through archived episodes of CFRU’s programming, editing out advertising or references to date-specific events;

– compile each episode into a multi-track file that will then become the playlist, ensuring that each file’s audio levels are suitable for playback;

– learn and apply skills for CFRU’s online streaming server hardware and software;

– work with the Tech Coordinator to edit CFRU’s live-streamed video performances that are posted on our YouTube channel;

– learn how to use our video-editing software, Wirecast and Final Cut Pro, in order to take our archived files and edit them for posting on our website and social media accounts

– regularly update our website to present the audio streams and edited video performances in an engaging and accessible way

– attend weekly staff meetings


This project will allow the student to learn how to utilize state of the art audio and video production technology, and will engage them in contributing to how community radio functions. The work completed by the Online Content Coordinator will allow for better exposure of CFRU’s programming in local businesses.
