Gisela Stuart has welcomed the news that a Sony Award-winning radio station for the blind and partially sighted will be opening new studios in Birmingham.
Insight Radio is run by the Royal National Institute for the Blind, communicating the needs, interests and aspirations of blind and partially sighted people throughout the UK. Many of the staff themselves have sight loss and the station offers an innovative and informed service specially tailored to the needs of such listeners.
Insight are now opening a series of satellite studios in several cities, including Birmingham. These studios will provide local opportunities for blind and partially sighted people to learn about radio and develop useful life skills such as confidence and teamwork. They will also produce local content for the main station output, providing a UK-wide perspective.
“There are over two million people with sight loss in the UK and Insight Radio provides them with an excellent source of advice, support and enjoyment. I’m delighted that Insight are coming to Birmingham and extending their service to my constituents.”
