Radio Talking Book Service Teams With Mundo Latino to Make Something Muy Bueno! Bekah Jerde Explains


Radio Talking Book Service (RTBS) broadcasts 24-hour programming, 7 days a week over the radio and internet on special radios provided to eligible listeners and care facilities at no cost. RTBS uses over 80 volunteer readers, whose diverse voices bring the printed word to life with the reading of 17 regional newspapers, grocery, and department store ads weekly, information from over 70 magazines, live interviews on our Community Conversations, a Veterans Hour, and much more.

Executive Director. Bekah Jerde, spent some time with Mike Hogan on “Live & Local” to chat about the new offering that began on July 11th.
