The WGCU Radio Reading Service is a member-supported service of WGCU Public Media at Florida Gulf Coast University. The reading service brings printed materials to persons who are blind, physically impaired and print handicapped via a special radio broadcast. The Radio Reading Service operates much like a commercial radio station with standard professional equipment including a control room, broadcast studios and individual recording booths.
Dedicated volunteers produce hundreds of hours of programming each month broadcasting news, shopping ads and current information from a variety of print sources. Local newspapers include the Fort Myers News-Press and the Naples Daily News. National publications include the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Time magazine with books, informational articles and magazines constituting the balance of the programming.
