Recess Theory: Exploring Recreation, Leisure & Tourism

Mission statement: Recess theory is a Nanaimo based radio show with a global audience of people interested in all aspects of leisure. The aim of the show is to mobilize the knowledge created in this vast field by interviewing influential leisure professionals and sharing ideas.

Vision statement: At the end of this project we would like to create a respected radio show with a wide audience, which can be continued in the future at VIU and CHLY.

The purpose of the radio program is to reach an audience that could be missed by traditional methods of research delivery. Radio, a free medium, is a way to engage a large population in a specific geographic area. The goal of this radio show is to first engage the local community and have segments that are available for radio syndication. By developing, gathering and researching the students are able to use radio as a vehicle for knowledge mobilization while applying professional practices to develop a media product in the tourism, leisure and recreation field.
