Radio Reading Service Signal Available In County

Robert Sikorski, president of the The Niagara Frontier Radio Reading Service, is shown presenting a reading radio to Mike Bird, publisher of The Post-Journal. The recent implementation of an additional signal allows the NFRRS to bring its radio reading service to residents of Chautauqua County. The NFRRS’ reading radios are specially tuned receivers which pick up a signal that cannot be heard on normal radios. Through the service, volunteers broadcast daily readings of newspapers, books and magazines that blind, visually impaired and print-handicapped residents can listen to for free. The NFRRS features local, regional and national news publications, more than 80 different magazines as well as best selling-books. Articles that appear in The Post-Journal will be read on the radio on Saturday afternoons. The Observer, of Dunkirk, is also read on the station. Subscribers receive a large print copy of the station’s schedule every other month, and it is also announced on the air by the hour. For more information, call 821-5555 or visit
