Our Vision. Your Sight. We broadcast local news and information critical to vision impaired listeners throughout the Pioneer Valley.

When you awake in the morning, how soon is it before you consume information and the latest news? Seconds, minutes?? That is the world we live in. More information than ever.

But what if the print world was no longer available to you? What about your local world? How do you stay current?

What about the more detailed, indepth news and information you have always relied on to stay connected and vital? How will you ensure that you continue to feel like you matter to yourself and to others? Where do you get all of that now that your eyes or body or reading challenges have changed your world?

Valley Radio Reading Service gives you what you need to know to lead your life the way you always have.

Every morning we bring you live readings of the local newspapers that have always been as much a part of your daily routine as your first cup of coffee.

  • Marilyn and John start you off on Mondays bringing you the Springfield Republican,
  • Colleen informs and entertains you with the Daily Hampshire Gazette on Tuesdays,
  • Never miss Anita Fritz' 'Neighbors' column in the Greenfield Recorder.

You need to know where to get the best deals on groceries and other essential daily items? We have it.

Where else could you hear a weekly roundup of the Westfield News in an hour from one of your neighbors. You get that every Thursday.

  • Couldn't imagine on Wednesday missing Gary Brown's Hitting to All Fields?
  • Barbara Bernard's column and invaluable words of wisdom? You get that on Fridays.
  • Bill remembers your name and welcomes you like the good friend that you are.

Our radios are special, our programming is unique and our listeners are just like you and me. We all need what Valley Radio Reading Service brings to our day.

I welcome you every morning to join us for the latest in what you need to know. Or sit back in the evening in your favorite, comfy chair and feel assured we have gathered it all for you. We bring you more than news and information, there is plenty of pure entertainment, too!

Our volunteer readers care about you. They work hard to bring you the latest, be it the up-to-date lottery numbers, obituaries or game scores. Reliable, trustworthy, and essential to your life. Valley Radio Reading Service.

We're here broadcasting every day for you to be you.

"We have an inspiring group of about 50 volunteers who make Valley Radio Reading Service possible--from the live readers to those recording material for later broadcast to technical wizards. Generosity and kindness permeates the atmosphere every day. There is a humanity that is palpable and makes one want to get out of bed in the morning so as a team we can help others."

Barbara Loh, Executive Director

Valley Radio Reading Service is soon to become ValleyEyeRadio!
