RISE is WMHT's 24-hour radio information service for the blind and print disabled in New York's Capital Region and the Hudson Valley. Each week, our dedicated team of volunteers reads articles from local and national newspapers, popular periodicals and books to audiences who would otherwise be unable to access such information. RISE depends on the generosity of concerned organizations and individuals, so please consider making a donation to assist us in providing this free public service.
