About Community Radio

 

Our Community Radio, also known as Social Economy (SE) Radio, took place in Fredericton, New Brunswick on 97.9 FM (local dial - CHSR). It was a place for community members to drop in, tune in and chime in! It was also a place for researchers to drop by, sharing their experiences within the social economy on the air. Check out this poster advertising the event for a better idea:

Community Radio Team

 

All community members and researchers were welcome on there air,  but here are the people who made it happen and who spent significant amounts of time on air:

 

Dr. Ivan Emke - Ivan is the Vice-Principal (Research), Memorial University of Newfoundland-Sir Wilfred Grenfell College campus. He has been exploring the idea of Community-Based Radio as a communication tool for groups in the social economy. This exploration has led him and his team to small communities across Atlantic Canada where live broadcasts happen, just like the one that took place in Fredericton. If you would like to contact Ivan: iemke@swgc.mun.ca
 

Fred Campbell - is a communicator, educator and rural development facilitator who has worked out of Atlantic Canada since 1979. Fred has extensive experience in communications including; working as a newspaper reporter -photographer and editor, a journalism college program coordinator and a communications program developer for Memorial University's rural extension service. Over the years, Fred has developed and coordinated a series of multi-community, multi-stakeholder rural development projects and he has produced a wide variety of videos, locally and internationally. He founded Ryakuga, a development support grassroots communications organization. This information about Fred was pulled from Ryakuga : check out the site!

 

Charlene Croft -  is an independent facilitator, researcher and consultant with an educational background in sociology (MSVU) and virtual anthropology. Specializing in social media, survey design and analysis and short-term project management, Charlene has been used by non-profit organizations like the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, The North End Community Health Centre and The Affordable Housing Association of Nova Scotia for various projects and contracts. She has also carried out contracts in the private sector with Kisserup International Trade Roots, and is currently an on-call contractor for Maverick Communications. Charlene coordinated online accounts and live webcasting during the week. She was also on the ground doing interviews.
 

Eva Emke - Eva is Ivan's talented 14 year old daughter. She was an on the ground reporter, an editor and, at times, she ran the control board and music: what a chameleon! Through Eva, we saw that community members of all ages improve community radio!

 

Melissa Russwurm -  Since August 2010, Melissa has been the Communications Assistant for the Social Economy and Sustainability Research Network (SESRN) Atlantic Node office. Melissa worked with the community radio broadcast, alongside other members of SESRN. She was a flexible, roving reporter, who specifically enjoyed walking through the Charlotte Street Arts Centre with the live mic, capturing moments as they happened in the lively centre.

 

Noreen Millar - MA (Sociology), has been the Coordinator of the Social Economy Network’s “Atlantic Node” since 2006. In this role, Noreen has had regular interactions with all of the partners in the Atlantic Network and with the CSE Hub and other regional nodes in the SSHRC-funded social economy project across Canada. Noreen interviewed many SESRN partners on air.

Noreen authored a book entitled "Mapping the Social Economy of Atlantic Canada: Profiles of Community Partners in the Social Economy Network, 2005-2010." This book and a book by David Bent, "Determined to Prosper: The Story of Sussex Co-op, the Oldest Agricultural Society in the World" ( a "Measuring the Co-operative Difference Research Network" project) was launched live on Community Radio!
