For 32 years, WRBH has been serving its mission to turn the printed word into the spoken word so that the blind and print handicapped can receive the same ease of access to current information as their sighted peers. WRBH seeks to empower, inform, and entertain a segment of the population that is much larger than most people realize. WRBH’s audience includes the blind and illiterate as well as individuals who are unable to read due to illness, spinal cord injuries, eye muscle damage, learning disabilities, lack of access to print media, and loss of vision due to age. WRBH also provides content that is of interest to the general public such as local and national news, best-selling novels, children’s books, and programs encouraging cultural, educational, and emotional enrichment. Thanks to countless hours donated by over 150 volunteers, WRBH’s programming is on the air 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 

WRBH is made possible in part thanks to a generous donation from

 

 



  

 

 

 

On Tuesday, November 4, 2014 WRBH and La Petite Grocery hosted A Blind Taste. Guests wore blindfolds during dinner, heightening the sense of taste and one’s ability to discover the unique flavors of the event’s five-course menu with wine pairings created by Chef Justin Devillier. The experience allowed diners to gain awareness of some of the challenges that blind people experience on a daily basis. All proceeds from A Blind Taste support programming and operations at WRBH, which is the United States’ only full-time reading radio service on the FM dial. For more information or to be placed on the list for next year, please contact WRBH’s Development Director, Kacie Stillings, at (504) 899-1144 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

WRBH would like to extend a special thank you to Justin and Mia Devillier of La Petite Grocery for their kindness, generosity, and dedication to A Blind Taste

It is always nice to receive letters from listeners letting us know that they appreciate what we do. We received this wonderful letter in the mail recently. This makes all of the hard work we put into the station totally worth it.
