ACCESSIBLE WORLD PRESENTS CHRISSIE COCHRAN, MANAGING DIRECTOR, THE GLOBAL VOICE
THE GLOBAL VOICE
Helping the World's Blind and Sighted Communities see Eye to Eye
The Global Voice, started on 1 May 2009, is a station primarily staffed by
blind and visually impaired people, though not entirely; with a mission to
help blind and visually impaired people integrate more into the mainstream
of society through the medium of radio. We are a global station running 24
hours a day, 7 days a week, and being worldwide, we try our best to see that
programs are repeated in such a way that they occur at prime times in well
populated areas of the world.
In terms of our programming, we are a multi-format station with an emphasis
on interactivity, streaming music, speech and programs in which the listener
can let their voices be heard.
We have broadcasters from many parts of the world and have some programs in
languages other than English.
Realizing that people these days like their radio on demand, we also have
our Program Gallery where music programs are available for download for one
week after streaming, and many of the talk programs are available for one
Our website is http://theglobalvoice.info where you can listen to, and learn
more about our station and philosophy.
