      Radio innovation alive and well at Ryerson

      With the launch of CJRT in the 1950s as the first educational FM Station in Canada, Ryerson established itself as a major player in radio innovation and technology. That legacy was ensured and strengthened this month with the opening of the Allan Slaight Radio Institute at RTA School of Media, thanks to a $3 million gift from The Slaight Family Foundation.
