Triangle Radio Reading Service
October 27, 2010

I have been a regular Friday morning reader for the Reading Service for almost 15 years. I love it! On a personal note, I like telling my friends that I "have a radio show". But more importantly, I like being able to help all the folks that listen to us. It is especially great when we get feedback from them. I have friends from the print impared community, and I know how much this means to them. I enjoy sharing anecdotes with my friends. And, it is always challenging and fun to cope with the typos in the newspaper since we read most of the items "cold". You really have to be on the ball!
