When we listen to the radio, it’s easy to imagine the host chatting into the microphone and doing … something … on a computer to keep it all moving. However, it takes a whole crowd (working from home, of course; crowds are dangerous!) of knowledgeable, creative people (and some pretty fancy technology) to create each second you hear.
During the month of May we want to reveal all the human effort that goes into an hour of CKUA programming. Your donations throughout our Spring Fundraiser help support so many different things you may not even know about!
Let’s check out a day in the life of Lorna Stevenson, Senior Accountant:
Hello, I’m Lorna Stevenson, I’ve been senior accountant here at CKUA since 2009. Back when I was an awkward thirteen year old, listening on my transistor radio long past my bedtime, I never dreamed that one day I’d get to be part of it. I’ve worked in the medical , legal, and industrial sectors, each was interesting in its own way, but CKUA has been the most rewarding.
So you want to know how I spend my days, well, they’re full. A myriad of tasks await each morning, invoices to code and enter, journal entries to post, endless emails: “Can I have? When can I have? Could you make? Is it possible …?” Reports, legers, telephone calls, pay the bills, some days it seems like I’m trying to stuff an elephant through a keyhole, but I keep at it because being part of this rare thing called CKUA is worthwhile and important. There’s no place like it and I love it.
