CKVI Radio is a CRTC-licensed community radio station, housed at Kingston Collegiate and Vocational Institute in Kingston, Ontario. It is the first such station in Canada. The radio station is operated in conjunction with a county-wide high school radio program of the Limestone District School Board. It can be found at 91.9 on your FM dial
CKVI and the radio broadcasting focus program of high school students who run it are indeed unique. Students come from miles around the city of Kingston, Ontario, Canada, to work exclusively at the radio station for a semester of classes. There is a daily classroom period where a whole curriculum devoted to radio is taught. Students also earn credits for working at keeping the station broadcasting by doing interviews, programming some specialty shows, and learning to follow computer generated logs for preprogrammed shows. They help organize benefit concerts by high school bands --there are many in Kingston-- to help raise funds for the station. They learn about microphone use, delivery, digital editing, sound production, “Person on the street” contact and interview techniques. The interviews include community organization representatives, people in the news, visiting dignitaries, experts or people with specialized knowledge , and of course interviews with the bands whose music we play at our station.
