Our Mission: “TIC’s staff and volunteers provide human voice(d) broadcasts of local news, articles, and items of interest to visually impaired and otherwise disabled listeners throughout Massachusetts to promote independence and enrich quality of life.”

How To Listen

*** 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. ***
