Who We Are

Connecticut Radio Information System, Inc. (CRIS) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) radio-reading service that has been serving people who are blind or print-challenged for more than four decades. Programs originate from our broadcast center in Windsor, as well as from our regional satellite studios in Danbury, Norwich, Norwalk, Trumbull, and West Haven. We operate with a small staff and a large number of dedicated volunteers who provide voice talent and serve on our fundraising committees and on our Board of Directors.

Mission & Goals

As Connecticut’s talking newsstand for people who are blind and print-challenged, it is the mission of CRIS Radio to provide the highest quality, electronic reading service in the state. CRIS helps enhance the quality of life of its listeners by providing access to the same printed news and information that their family, friends, classmates, and colleagues enjoy. It is our current goal to become a national model for other radio-reading services.
