Operated by Goodwill Industries, WEYE is also known as “Seeing Eye Radio.” It is a radio reading service for the visually impaired. For 34 years, the service has been broadcasting topical and local information to print-impaired individuals over a secondary channel of WZIP-FM in North Central Ohio, and Clear Channel in the Mansfield area.
Programming includes in-depth coverage of local newspapers along with readings from magazines, and best-selling books presented in series. Talk shows and special interest programs encourage listeners to share experiences, exchange views, and gain knowledge. Specially tuned radios are provided for a nominal charge to qualified listeners. Two other Ohio Goodwills already deliver radio reading services in their territories.
Radio Reading Services reach nearly 4,000 people. Joe and I are proud to be two of the 60-80 volunteer readers that make it possible for WCRS to broadcast 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
