Cortes Community Radio’s 2017 AGM

 Cortes Community radio’s AGM was held on June 11, 2017.

The key message was delivered by outgoing President Sheryl Thompson, who described the previous 12 months as a “Breakthrough Year”.

As you will hear in the podcast below:

  • the “Deep Roots” and “Vintage Vignettes”  programs were launched.
  • CKTZ also produced “Rendezvous,” a French Language series for the National Community Radio Association that is now available across the country.
  • CKTZ Initiated partnerships with the Klahoose First Nation, Friends of Cortes Island (FOCI), Cortes Island Museum and Theatre Quadra.
  • An emergency back-up for the radio station tower, for power outages of up to 36 hours, was funded by a BC Gaming Grant.
  • CKTZ held its very first cabaret (licensed adult night).
  • CKTZ held 3 Lip Syncs: 2 on Cortes and 1 on Quadra Island.
  • Much more….

A new Board was voted in:

President: Roy L Hales
Vice President: Barry Glickman
Secretary: Rochelle Baker
Treasurer: Julia Rendall
Member at Large: Leonard Woywitka

Programmers Wanted


CKTZ is a non profit community organization that survives by the involvement of our listeners. Think about joining us- you’ll have fun! We always need more programmers. The possibilities for new shows is endless. I’ve often wondered why in a community of avid gardeners we don’t have a garden show. There are so many articulate passionate people on Cortes that we could have a truly diverse, unique radio station.
