CRIS Radio Welcomes You

The Connecticut Radio Information System (CRIS), is Connecticut's only radio reading service. We are registered with the state of Connecticut as a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

The programs broadcast on CRIS Radio are available to individuals who, because of vision loss, learning disability or physical handicap, are unable to read printed material. CRIS Radio programming features a wide variety of articles from national and Connecticut newspapers, magazines, as well as book readings and interview programs.

CRIS Radio's live programming is provided free of charge and is available on specially tuned radios (provided free), cable providers, your telephone and online. In addition, CRIS can be accessed on an iPhone, iPad/tablet, Internet radio or downloaded onto an iPod/MP3 player.

Missed your favorite program? No problem. Subscribe for a modest monthly or annual fee to CRIS Listen On-Demand or CRISKids™, the only extensive online and on-demand service in the nation and Canada to provide audio versions of award-winning children's magazines.

CRIS broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from regional satellite studios in Danbury, Norwich, Trumbull, West Haven, and our broadcast center in Windsor.
