Message to RRS Listeners:

At this time, WJCT Radio Reading Service offers one-hour readings of the local Florida Times-Union newspaper at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Sunday through Friday on this website. Please see the program schedule below for other (national) newspapers and magazines that are read by volunteers around the country.

WJCT Radio Reading Service enriches and empowers the lives of individuals in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia who are visually impaired and print challenged. Our closed circuit radio station broadcasts commercial-free readings of local and national newspapers, magazines, and much more 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Founded on May 3, 1993, it remains the only service of its kind on the First Coast.
