Volunteer readers sought for broadcast

DeKALB – Northern Illinois Radio Information Service is seeking volunteer radio readers to read newspapers and magazines aloud.

The broadcast schedule includes 23 local and regional newspapers along with several national newspapers, books and programs of special interest, all read by volunteer readers who broadcast live or recorded programs that air in the evening or on the weekend. Programs usually air weekly and are one to two hours long.

NIRIS, headquartered in Rockford with studio facilities in both Rockford and DeKalb, is broadcast on a sub carrier channel of WNIJ-FM, 89.5, a Northern Illinois University public service station which has more than 600 listeners in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.

For a volunteer application, contact Cindy Lynn Ostergard in the Rockford area at 815-972-2955 or clostergard@niu.edu, or Doug Herrington in the DeKalb area at 815-753-0076.
