    IRSC Public Media stations provide local news and weather information throughout the day and work closely with non-profit organizations to promote their activities through public service announcements, and the show ''In Focus with IRSC Public Media''.

    IRSC Public Media also operates the WQCS Radio Reading Service on a closed-circuit sub-carrier. Approximately 500 blind and visually and physically impaired listeners receive the reading service. Each morning, volunteers read local newspapers and other publications.
