As Connecticut’s talking newsstand for the blind and print-challenged, it is the mission of CRIS Radio to provide the highest quality, electronic reading service in the state.
CRIS helps enhance the quality of life of its listeners by providing access to the same printed news and information that their family, friends, classmates, and colleagues enjoy.
It is our current goal to become a national model for other radio-reading services.
Ability Media was created by longtime broadcast journalist Dave Stevens and the School of Communications at Quinnipiac University to address a pressing need across all forms of media – the lack of representation of people with different abilities in the content and in jobs.
Our team is comprised primarily of interns from Quinnipiac University and overseen by Chris Roush, the dean of the School of Communications, and Dave Stevens, a professional in residence. All members of our team are dedicated to increasing representation of people with different abilities and many members have personal experience with this.
Ability Media is creating inclusive content in various forms. On our site you can find articles, videos, and podcasts covering a variety of topics with a focus on people of varying abilities in media. More content can be found on our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok.
