Factoid Friday: The Station of Good Neighbors

By Annmarie Dean

Back in 2008, WNED began providing WNED-FM’s analog sub-channel to the Niagara Frontier Radio Reading Service (NFRRS) as their new main broadcasting outlet.  radio.mic

NFRRS provides daily access of printed materials (like The Buffalo News, National Geographic and The New Yorker) to thousands of blind and print-handicapped people in Western New York and Southern Ontario. 

Volunteers broadcast daily readings to listeners who are provided “reading radios,” which are small radios that can be turned on to the agency that ‘gives the blind a chance to read…everyday.”
