HOSTED BY KENNEDY ELSEY!
We are so grateful to Kennedy for hosting our big night and for supporting our mission! Kennedy Elsey is part of the Karson & Kennedy show you hear every weekday morning from 530-10 on Mix 10401. Karson & Kennedy you hear every weekday morning from 5:30-10 on Mix 104.1. She grew up in suburban Chicago and graduated from Drake University with a double major in Theater and Psychology. She lives with mental illness, including bipolar disorder, and uses her time behind a microphone to fight fiercely to stop the stigma that goes hand in hand with mental illness and sits on the board of Samaritans. She has also worked with Perkins School for the Blind helping a few folks with their radio show. She lives in Quincy with her dog, Elvis, the most stable man in her life.
The Talking Information Center (TIC) is celebrating 45 years of providing reading services for the blind and low vision community. With the help of over 200 volunteers, TIC broadcasts over 322 publications over our radio station each week so those living with low vision have access to the printed word. TIC provides a necessary service, not simply a "nice to have" service, as our programming provides listeners access to the same information sighted individuals have, which allows our listeners to live informed and autonomous lives.
TIC's programming also combats isolation by providing human-voiced broadcasts of publications. Isolation has been classified as one of the largest health risks in the world, especially for seniors over the age of 65. The need for our programming became more evident than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic as we saw our listenership triple as listeners looked for a way to combat loneliness.
Thank you for supporting the Talking Information Center so we can continue to provide this vital service for another 45 years!
