Before you tune in to Kelly and Company, make sure to grab your morning coffee a little earlier and kick-start your day with host Mike Ross as Live from Studio 5 returns in a new timeslot, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET daily. Catch up on all the latest technology, information and news of the day with the Live from Studio 5 team.

John Melville, AMI's Vice President of Programming and Production is excited to offer even more live programming on AMI-audio to the blind and partially sighted community.

"AMI is encouraged by the response from our community to AMI-audio's new live show format and now, with the addition of new shows throughout the day and on the weekend, we can provide blind and partially sighted Canadians from coast to coast the opportunity to engage with more current, entertaining and informative topics."

New listener favorite Open Dialogue airs Sundays at 7 p.m. ET. Tune in as Jim Van Horne navigates a range of disability related topics and issues through the lens of advocacy, inclusion, and empowerment with a panel of experts and listener opinions.

AMI-audio is also pleased to announce the premiere of the syndicated program Tech Talk in its first ever North American debut. Produced by the RNIB's Connect Radio, Tech Talk is an accessible technology news program made for and by people who are blind and partially sighted. Managing Editor of Group Media at the RNIB, Ross Macfadyen, is energized by the global inclusion of the blind and partially sighted community in the world of technology.

"Sight loss is not exclusive to any one country and so the development of technology for the blind and partially sighted community generally should be shared the world over. I regard this partnership to be the beginning of a richly rewarding exchange of content between our two countries benefiting people living with vision loss worldwide." Make sure to listen to Tech Talk Fridays at 7 p.m.
