I am writing in because I have some exciting news to share regarding this year’s national convention coverage.
As you know, over the past few years, there has been an online stream provided of the general sessions, banquet, and board of directors meeting for people to check out, especially those who aren’t able to make the national convention.
There will be a stream this year, too, but there’s an exciting announcement I’d like to share about this.
It is my pleasure to announce that 195 The Globe, an online radio station, has partnered with the National Federation Of The Blind to provide convention coverage this year from Orlando Florida.
The events that 195 The Globe will be covering from convention are:
All general sessions
The board of director’s meeting
The Performing Arts Division talent show/showcase of talent Plus other special interviews and coverage to be announced.
The announcement was officially made on The Blind Side this week. You can hear the recording of the announcement by going to
The fact that the globe, which is always streaming 24/7, is covering the convention this year will make it easier for you to listen to the convention stream if you are unable to attend, since the globe is available not just through the standard media players, but on Tunein and OOTunes. You can even ask alexa or google to play 195 The Globe on Tunein, and that’s another way for you to listen to convention coverage too!
Please watch social media, the #nfb18 hash tag, and other lists for more information and times for these events to be streamed during this year’s national convention.
Thanks to President Riccobono and members of the national office for giving us this opportunity to provide top of the line coverage of this year’s convention.
