Greetings from CFUR

Posted by on Sep 9, 2016 in Culture | 0 comments

Hey there, dedicated fans and readers of Over The Edge. CFUR radio would like to welcome all of you to our beautiful school. New or returning students alike can all agree that UNBC is a great place to be, so congratulations on your excellent judgment. We trust that you all had sun-filled summers complete with campfires, bathing suits, and acoustic guitars. For all you new students, we are in the NUGSS building right beside the Over the Edge office. Our goal is to provide to students a platform to build their skills in pretty much any media related field. CFUR is a student/volunteer run community radio station located right here at UNBC. If you have any interest at all in journalism, radio, TV, music production, documentaries, business management, grant writing, or the entertainment industry in general, there is a place for you at CFUR. All of our staff and volunteers are delightfully intelligent and funny, so you would fit right in. On top of that, local Prince George legends such as Bad Not Cheap, In the Moshpit, and the volunteer ran program The Fresh Sheet are broadcast right out of our little slice of UNBC heaven, to you, the radio connoisseur. CFUR recently welcomed new staff members, Britt Meierhofer and Grant Bachand along with...

Wrapped in conspiracy, glazed in mystery

Colin Slark | Editor In Chief The Over The Edge newsroom received a startling letter during the summer months. I looked at it curiously. The return address was listed as a small town in Alabama, a market not generally known to be fans of Northern BC student journalism. It was addressed to Over The Edge care of “Colin Stark.” I thought of two things, “Boy, this is gonna be interesting,” and “Game of Thrones has ruined my name. Inside a handwritten note read “Dear Colin Stark, Canada is breathtakingly beautiful, but unfortunately it has a VERY DARK SIDE. I hope you will look at the flyers enclosed and enlighten those around you. Signed (name withheld), researcher.” Already, this hit a few checkmarks on my list of good potential story ideas. First, exposing something’s hidden dark side is a surefire path to awards and glory. Second, I felt a compulsion to “enlighten” as the researcher requested, I am after all, a journalist. Finally, they had already done the research and so the amount of work I had to do personally promised to be low. With these things in mind, I turned to the first flyer. It was a page of bylaws from the Women’s Republican Club of New Orleans. Already I had gleaned my first...

Diary of a C+ Student

Monique Gendron | Production Assistant Student after high school, university seemed like it was going to be a step up. And having a university basically on my doorstep made it that much easier for me to transition into a new educational landscape. I felt so much hope and optimism, and all of my friends were wishing me good luck and goodbye, even though I could still come around and visit them regularly. My first thought, walking into the wooden halls of...
