GroundWire is seeking your stories!!


GROUNDWIRE COMMUNITY RADIO NEWS is a bi-weekly 29-minute news radio program featuring headlines,reports and features from the community radio sector in Canada. The program aims to be a reliable, high-quality newscast, engaging the audience with geographically and culturally diverse features of interest to a national audience.

GroundWire Community Radio News balances grassroots coverage of local stories with progressive perspectives on national and international issues. GroundWire works to encourage self-representation from diverse communities in Canada, Quebec, and in Indigenous nations, and features music from under-represented Canadian artists. GroundWire is aired on campus and community radio stations across Canada, and is also distributed online through the NCRA and other independent media sites.

GroundWire is looking for folks to write headlines and join the headline team.  We are also looking for community radio news journalists to contribute and produce episodes.
