CiTR 101.9 FM is the broadcasting voice of the University of British Columbia, situated on the unceded, traditional Coast Salish territory of the Hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ speaking Musqueam peoples. CiTR began as a student club in 1937, gaining not-for-profit status and a place on the FM dial in 1982. Run by the Student Radio Society of UBC, CiTR offers students and community members broadcast training and access to the airwaves, broadcasting 100+ locally-focused radio programs in seven different languages, streamed online and available as podcasts.
Since 1983, CiTR has published Discorder Magazine, mirroring CiTR’s mandate to amplify underrepresented communities and to provide invaluable publishing experience. Discorder prints 10 issues per year with a distribution of 8000 copies across the Lower Mainland and Victoria, and publishes web exclusive content throughout the month. Though initially founded as a music-focused magazine, Discorder now covers a range of content related to the local arts scene, community organizing, current affairs and much more!

- Create alternative and locally-based programming
