Cam FM has released a new schedule for the approaching Michaelmas Term. This includes an extended slot for a spectacular show run by The Cambridge Student.
The revised schedule places a greater emphasis on speech programming and introduces a number of new and innovative shows.
TCS on the Radio will be returning following its debut last term with an expansion to 3 hours. The show, broadcasting Monday afternoons, will bring you the latest news, engaging interviews and general chatter about the goings on in Cambridge.
Joe Whitwell, who will be leading the TCS Broadcast team, said "we are delighted to renew our Cam FM show…..We have lots of great ideas for next term in our new timeslot, including more investigations, more interviews and music specially chosen by our music editor. "
"I'm keen to see what the Tab do with their new show…It's great that other papers are following in our footsteps."
"I don't think student media has ever been stronger."
Factual entertainment will also be provided by Lucy Wark when she presents The Big Debate. There will be a new, dedicated sports show entitled The Cambridge Sports Report, hosted by Jack Ranson, which will feature live reports from the most important matches of the year, as well as in-studio interviews and analysis.
Elsewhere on the schedule drama and comedy are going to feature more prominently with the introduction of an hour long show on Sunday evenings by the Cambridge Shortlegs, presenting new dramatic writing, adaptation and interpretation. Cam FM will also be producing its very own sketch show, the first episode of which will go out on Friday 10th October.
Music remains at the heart of station and the team is now looking to be more innovative in what they produce. There are new additions such as Mowgli, an experimental music show that will air from 10-11:30pm on Sundays and Mondays, and Masterpiece, a show which will take legendary albums and play them in full.
Old regulars like Saturday Breakfast and Cam FM Breakthrough remain and Saturday and Friday’s line-ups will still be familiar to regular listeners. Sunday’s schedule has undergone the greatest transformation with at least three new shows currently scheduled but Program Controller Jack Winstanley believes that the changes will have a positive effect.
“I am really excited about the amount of programming we are starting Michaelmas with", he told TCS. "We have worked really hard over the last few months to increase the volume, quality and variety of shows we can offer to our listeners, and this really shows through in the new schedule"
"These are really exciting times for Cam FM and everyone involved is really looking forward to the start of the academic year!”
