99.9 Voice FM will begin reading the Ballarat Times on air, the community radio station has announced.

At 11.30am every Friday, members of the Voice FM RPH reading team will bring the Ballarat Times to people who are vision impaired, have a reading difficulty or are otherwise unable to pick up a copy of the paper.

“Ballarat’s community radio station is proudly part of the RPH Radio Reading Network which has one purpose – to provide a reading service for people with disabilities,” said 99.9 Voice FM Chair, Ron Egeberg.

“RPH Australia is the peak body for the Radio Reading Network; community radio services dedicated to providing access to information for the estimated five million Australians with a print disability.”

Voice FM broadcasts across the city and the region and can be heard as far as Talbot, Greendale, Ballan, Meredith, Linton and Beaufort.

The community broadcaster is in the process of relocating to a new, state of the art broadcasting facility at Barkly Square and will join anchor tenants including BGT Jobs and Training, the Ballarat Toy Library, the Ballarat Regional Multicultural Council, and the Ballarat Times News Group.
