A CKUA Day in the Life: Lorna Stevenson

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.

Curious about how your donation travels behind-the-scenes and winds up supporting one hour of programming at CKUA? Here’s another story about all the human effort that makes that magic happen. Let’s check out a day in the CKUA 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.
