Radio Reading Service


 

Are you or a loved one unable to read the newspaper because of sight or mobility constraints? The WNIN Radio Reading Service provides news and information via special receivers to over 250 sight-impaired people in the Tri-State.

Each morning, seven days a week, these WNIN listeners are served volunteers who come to the WNIN studios to read from area newspapers.

Local broadcasts are from 8AM to 12PM CT on weekdays, and from 9AM to 2PM CT on weekends. During the remainder of the 24-hour broadcast day, Radio Reading listeners may enjoy readings from the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal as provided by the Gatewave network. The WNIN Radio Reading Service is now available on Alexa. You'll have to enable the WNIN Reading Service Skill on your smartphone, and then ask Alexa to play WNIN Radio Reading Service.

If you would like to become a Radio Reading Service volunteer or if you know someone who might benefit from having a Radio Reading Service receiver please give us a call at (812) 423-2973 ext. 166 or email kmcdonald@wnin.org.
