Cam FM is the student radio station for the University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University. Founded in 1979, it is now one of the most heavily listened to student radio stations in the UK, as well as one of the largest student-run media organisations in Cambridge.
Every aspect of the station is run by students, staff, and alumni of the Universities - from presenting, producing to operations and administration as part of the committee. The content is primarily geared towards engaging with the student community in Cambridge.
We broadcast over 100 hours of high quality original programming every week during term time, all coordinated from our local studio facilities, and covering diverse genres from specialist music to radio drama.
Cam FM runs several large-scale outside broadcasts each year, mainly focussing on sports events, such as the Bumps rowing competitions and Varsity sports matches (including rugby, rugby league, football, and more). We cover the annual Freshers' Fairs of both Universities, hold squashes and socials for members and freshers, and raise money for charity every year during a 24-hour continuous broadcast.
Despite these brilliant achievements, Cam FM remains an environment in which people can learn the ins and outs of broadcasting. Anyone associated with the University can undertake training, the programme for which covers presenting, technology and production. Once trained, people go on to produce and present shows on the station, and in many cases join the friendly and flourishing Cam FM committee.
