WLRN Radio is the oldest FM station in South Florida, a National Public Radio (NPR) member station and the first choice among South Floridians who keep abreast of world events through NPR and our local programming. Now, in a powerful news partnership with The Miami Herald, WLRN presents the most comprehensive local and regional news every half hour during Morning Edition, middays, and All Things Considered. WLRN also manages the Radio Reading Service, an invaluable resource for the visual and print handicapped in the community. Twenty-four hours a day, this unique service provides vital news, information, and literary enrichment for those who are not able to read for themselves. The service is broadcast over a private frequency and heard on special receivers provided to listeners without cost or obligation. Volunteers make this effort possible. WLRN-TV has crafted a program schedule reflecting the interests, attitudes, and lifestyles of South Floridians through a wide variety of local and national PBS productions. With its weekly program line-up of all kids, all day, WLRN has become the most-watched kids' station in the state of Florida. This program commitment to children all day has made WLRN the leading Ready to Learn (RTL) station in the state as well. RTL is an early childhood education program that provides parents and caregivers, in agencies and at home, with the training, resources and support they need to make sure the children in their care are ready to learn when they enter school. The RTL service builds on the popularity of PBS children's programs and increases their educational value by helping adults use public television as a proven tool for educating their children. WLRN-TV presents the best of the PBS nationally recognized series to compliment locally produced specials.
