A lot of CBC folk cut their teeth on campus radio, where they not only picked up valuable broadcasting skills but also many of their political opinions.
And now, campus radio is welcoming them home by giving locked-out journos a place to ply their craft during the interim.
CBC Unplugged reports that campus radio stations in Vancouver will run Radio Zero , and the University of Calgary's station will run a similar current affairs program, according to Dan Misener.
For CBC Radio junkies missing their fix, it's a godsend. For CBC Radio haters, the upside is that campus stations tend to be low wattage, thus sparing the suburbs and countryside.
Anything to keep them out of trouble!
