Radio broadcasters reunite for A Day To Listen 2022

Radio broadcasters from across the country are once again coming together on the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on Friday, Sept. 30 with A Day To Listen 2022.

This year’s 12-hour broadcast will be hosted by JUNO Award-winning Indigenous singer-songwriters William Prince and Celeigh Cardinal. Airing from 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. local time, it will feature stories from Indigenous leaders, residential school survivors, elders, musicians, and teachers centred around the theme of “Messages of Hope.”

Produced by the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund (DWF), in partnership with Orbyt Media, last year’s A Day To Listen captured the Broadcast Dialogue Canadian Radio Award for Best Community Service Initiative (Major Market).

“The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund is proud to be working in partnership with radio stations throughout Canada to air A Day To Listen 2022 in recognition of September 30, National Day for Truth and Reconciliation,” said Sarah Midanik, President and CEO of the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund. “As we continue to move forward on the path toward reconciliation, we aim to inspire hope for future generations of Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Gord called on people throughout Canada to “Do Something.” At DWF, we hope A Day To Listen 2022 will inspire all people throughout Canada to take reconciliACTION – meaningful action that moves reconciliation forward.”

“We are proud to continue our partnership with the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund for this important initiative in recognition of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation,” added Heather Edwards, Affiliate Relations, Orbyt Media. “It is a privilege to produce A Day To Listen for a second year, and unite with broadcasters across the country to share these impactful stories and interviews.”
