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.
