*** TIC is slowly re-starting in-person operations with limited hours. To keep all staff and volunteers safe from the spread of the COVID – 19 virus, TIC is following all safety protocols and measures mandated by state and federal guidelines. Our hours of operation at our studios are temporarily 8:00a.m. – 12:00 p.m. until further notice with the remainder of our mission carried out remotely. TIC will continue to work hard to bring our listeners the news and information they need to stay informed, especially during these uncertain times. Please give us a call at 781-834-4400 with any questions or concerns. *** 

Thank You For a Successful Fundraiser

Thank you to our friends at MCTV for simulcasting our fundraiser from Oct. 2 on their Facebook page.

 Missed the fundraiser?! Watch the video below to see what you missed!

Operating remotely has not stopped TIC from carrying out our vital mission. We have continued to serve our listeners and are keeping them up- to- date with what's happening in their communities. 

Due to TIC's incredibly selfless volunteers, we have had the ability to produce the most important content remotely to ensure our listeners can continue to live autonomous, independent lives.

We also have been broadcasting messages from Commissioner D'Arcangelo, Commissioner of The Massachusetts Commission for the Blind. (MCB) to keep our listeners up to speed with the operations of MCB amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

How can TIC help YOU?! Do you have a message that you need to the low vision or senior population to hear?! Let TIC be your voice! Simply give us a call at 781-834-4400 or send us an email with your message to general@ticnetwork.org and we will broadcast it to our 30,000 listeners across the state of Massachusetts.Thank you. We hope you all stay healthy and safe.
