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. Our 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 live shows and podcasts, and to upload work they’ve produced. We’re always looking for students to write news, articles, and reviews. Join us!
Meet the SpiritLive Staff!
While completing my undergraduate with RTA, I had the opportunity to work extensively with SpiritLive as a performer, producer, and assistant.
During my four years, I had the chance to produce 4 different live shows with SpiritLive. I was also involved in the production of the 2020 Spirit1 Show as the executive producer. Unfortunately, the show was cancelled in the wake of the pandemic.
Despite this, my time working with SpiritLive and Spirit1 was where I found my passion for audio media and honed my skills as a technical/executive producer. I hope to give back to give students the support to create content they feel proud of.
