The Niagara Frontier Radio Reading Service

 The Niagara Frontier Radio Reading Service


The Niagara Frontier Radio Reading Service (NFRRS) gives daily access of printed matter to thousands of blind and print-handicapped persons throughout Western New York and Southern Ontario's Niagara Peninsula. Volunteers broadcast daily readings of newspapers, magazines, books, and vital information to listeners, who are all provided "reading radios".

Since 1987, the NFRRS has broadcast 200,000 hours of radio readings. Regarded as one of the nation's finest radio reading services for the blind, and New York State's best radio reading service, the Niagara Frontier Radio Reading Service has compiled a track record of exemplary efficiency, productivity, and excellence.


NFRRS Honors include the Governor's Eleanor Roosevelt Community Service Award, the Buffalo Eye Bank Award (for service above and beyond the call of duty to the sight-impaired), and the J.C. Penney Golden Rule Award (for Western New York's outstanding volunteer service program).


The Niagara Frontier Radio Reading Service has become a trusted friend to those who face each day without sight, helping them become active members of society, and improving their quality of life. All listeners are provided a special receiver, which looks like a table-model radio. The receivers are tuned only to the NFRRS broadcast signal and provide instant, 24/7 access to a wide variety of printed matter.


If you, or someone you know, would benefit from our service, call 716-821-5555.
