About Us

Midweek is a production of the Carleton University School of Journalism and Communication in Ottawa.

The Midweek team’s members are journalism students in the senior year of our School’s bachelor or master of journalism programs. Most groups total about 22, and their members come from across the country and often from abroad as well. Midweek teams do nine on-air shows each, in either the Fall or Winter terms of the academic year.

Midweek’s studios are located at The School of Journalism and Communication in Richcraft Hall on Carleton’s campus, and our shows are transmitted by CKCU 93.1 FM, the campus and community radio station based at Carleton, as well as on the Internet.

You can listen to us live online most Wednesdays during the university’s Fall and Winter academic terms: We’re on CKCU-FM after the BBC News at noon right here.

Carleton University’s journalism school is the oldest one in Canada. It was initiated in 1946 and continues to graduate top students with a thorough education in journalism and public affairs.
