LISTEN with the audio player at the bottom of this post.

In November of 2010 I attended a volunteer orientation at Central Kentucky Radio Eye in Lexington.

CKRE is a reading service for people who have difficulty reading newspapers and periodicals due to visual or physical limitations. The programs are available as a radio broadcast, over the web, and through various other services.

The radio studio is in the building with Northside Public Library on Russell Cave Road in Lexington, KY.

I was inspired to become involved by the enthusiasm and professionalism of the station manager, Amy Hatter.

Since then, Amy has been promoted to the Executive Director position.

In this episode, I talk with Amy about how she became involved as a VISTA (Volunteer in Service to America), who the listeners are, where to listen, the history of the station and the founding leaders, opportunities for volunteers, funding, what a recording session is like and more.

Amy is also involved with the Lexington Leadership program, and their service project titled Bluegrass Wellness at Work.

She encourages people to participate in their fitness challenge. More information about the challenge is available at bluegrasswellnessatwork.org and by emailing bluegrasswellnessatwork@gmail.com.

The website for Central Kentucky Radio Eye is at radioeye.org and Amy’s email address is amy.hatter@radioeye.org.

The studio phone number is 1-859-422-6390

I have served CKRE as a control board operator for one year, outreach committee member for one year, and a reader for fifteen months.

If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity in Lexington, I recommend that you attend a volunteer orientation to explore whether this opportunity is a fit for you.
