SpiritLive is a 24/7 web-streaming broadcast station, featuring original content produced by students of the RTA School of Media from our studios in the Allan Slaight Radio Institute at Ryerson University.
SpiritLive’s goal is to provide RTA students with a platform from which they can create and disseminate media, putting to use the knowledge, skills, and creativity they have honed in the RTA program.
Want to get involved at SpiritLive? RTA students are encouraged to submit proposals for new radio shows, and to upload work they’ve produced. We’re always looking for students to write news, articles, and reviews. Contact us!
