Season Seven


The mission of CCO Radio is to empower the voice of Chicago youth specially the communities that we at Catalyst Schools serve. We believe that the creative venues like Radio and Television will give voices not only to the scholars at Catalyst but around world as well. CCO Radio’s biggest hope is to give our scholars opportunities to share their ideas, vision, and passion creatively.

Our Team

Mr.Shamim: is the coordinator in charge of CCO Radio. He created this to give students the chance at self expression and to give them a experience unlike any other in hopes they will find a love in radio.

Mis.Jay: is Mr. Shamim's assistant she helps with programing and ideas for shows for the students to do and listen to. Along with this she also helps teach students all the in's and out's of radio from production, to writing scripts, and even to how to hold interviews.

Where it all began

CCO Radios started off as a "Design and Innovations" class lead by Mr. Shamim, the seniors and juniors at Catalyst Maria High School went on a Tech adventure, from coding, design, to working on our very own radio station.

During the initial stages, the Design and Innovations course was divided into four departments - Music, Marketing, Coding/Design, and Hardware. The scholars collectively met each Friday for a round table meeting to discuss their achievements for the week and how their department helped the rest of the team. The team was able to launch our radio station the last week of the first semester and lots of behind the scene work has been completed.
