Friend of the blog and CiTR sports director Wilson Wong (@longbomb) asked us to spread the word about CiTR's "Fundrive", which ends on Thursday.
And we're happy to promote it here--albeit one day later than I intended--since we know what it's like to run a CIS media operation on a shoestring.
CiTR, of course, does more than cover university sports, but this isn't called The Many Benefits of Campus Radio Blog, so we'll stick with sports. In Wilson's words: "Our station does about 100 games live on radio and the web each CIS season covering UBC Thunderbirds games. And the more money we raise, the more resources we can tap into for equipment upgrades and travel to cover CIS playoff games."
At last count, the station had nearly reached the two-thirds mark of their $30,000 goal. More resources given to a campus radio station can only lead to better coverage of CIS sports, so I'm sure all stations could use a donation, but if you'd like to donate to CiTR in particular, the link to do so is here.
