The Cowichan Valley Community Radio Society is a not-for-profit, volunteer run organization which operates Radio Station CICV 98.7 FM , in the Cowichan Lake area of Vancouver Island, BC. Our mission is to provide accessible communication to the residents of the Cowichan Valley. We undertake to be responsive to the needs and interests of the citizens of the Cowichan Lake Area. Our top priority will be the broadcasting of local events, encouraging local talent, and providing a reliable source of information especially during emergency situations.
The thing that makes CVC Radio different from all commercial stations and most other public radio stations is that we are owned by the community that we serve. Our Board of Directors is elected by our listeners who support us and by our active volunteers and DJ (CVC Radio's term for on air host or dj). Our programs and programmers are selected by a Programming Committee that is elected by both the Board and by the station's volunteers.
The Cowichan Valley Community Radio Society is a volunteer organization. We rely on membership dues, sponsorship and advertising revenues, municipal grants and public donations to keep us on the air.
We encourage you to join us! If you choose to help On Air we provide all training ... Free of Charge. ( Volunteer DJ looks pretty good on a resume!) Donations to CICV can be made at any Island Savings Branch.
Join our growing list of volunteers. CICV is a community focused station. We broadcast from various live locations, The Great Lake Walk finish line, The Country Grocer and Home Hardware customer appreciation days.
