CRIS Radio Welcomes You

The Connecticut Radio Information System (CRIS), is Connecticut's only radio reading service. 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.

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.  Read more.


​Simply stated, CRIS would not exist without volunteers, 300 of them across the state, that offer their time and talent to bring words to life. On June 16, eighty volunteers came together at the Governor's Mansion to celebrate their dedication.  Heartfelt gratitude to all of you, for making CRIS' service possible.

Peter Anderson accepts the 30 Year Service Award from ED Diane Weaver Dunne. Jim MacPherson, one of the first voices of CRIS, has been at it for 35 years! Would CRIS be CRIS without Keith Sullivan? Here Keith presents the award winners.
