CKRZ Has Alot To Celebrate

In 2016 CKRZ summer students worked diligently to convert the entire CKRZ CD library (approx 10,000) to a digital format.

September 2016,  CKRZ received a $210,000 grant to move into the digital era special thanks to the Six Nations Economic Development Trust.  A complete technological upgrade moved CKRZ from analog to digital during September to December 2016 with special thanks to Engineers on site: Ted Townsend, Walt Juchniewicz, Skip Shields, and I can’t forget Seigi, Marty, Adam and John.

  December 2016 CKRZ received their approval to move from 250 watts to 5000.  December 22nd CKRZ made it a reality with a special thanks to Walt and John and CKMS in Kitchener-Waterloo.

CKRZ is continuing into Phase 3 of their expansion with new many new initiatives to come.

On behalf of the CKRZ Board and Staff, thank you to all those who attended the CKRZ 27th Anniversary Saturday January 21, 2017 in the Ohsweken Plaza.
