Research radio show to return to air Wednesday

Innovative and cutting-edge research generated at the University of Windsor will get regular exposure on the airwaves once again come Wednesday, January 7. The radio show Research Matters had a short hiatus, but tomorrow host Sara Elliott brings the program back to CJAM 99.1FM.

Elliott, research communications officer in the Department of Public Affairs and Communications, brings many years of broadcast experience as a host at CBC radio and plans to entertain as well as inform the listeners as she interviews a wide variety of researchers from across campus.

“Radio allows researchers to tell their stories in their own voices,” said Elliott. “That makes it a powerful way to inform the local community and beyond about all the wonderful research happening right here on campus.”

The half-hour weekly talk show airs Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m. but will also be archived on the station’s website for listeners to hear later at their own convenience.

The first guest will be librarian Dave Johnston, scholarly communications coordinator at the Leddy Library. He’ll talk about UWindsor’s work to stay on the leading edge of online publishing: from archiving websites to eTextbook pilot projects.
