Listen to RTBS on your Alexa!

RTBS has an Alexa Skill which provides access to our programming.  With this skill, you can easily select a magazine, a news program, or one of our other selections to listen to, or listen to our live stream.


Get started by saying, “Alexa, enable the Radio Talking Book Nebraska skill”

Alexa will read you the main options: Listen live, play a certain podcast, listen to the program directory, or listen to the broadcast schedule.

To listen live, say “Live”. To play a certain show, say the show name. To hear a categorized list of all programs, say “Directory.” To hear the broadcast schedule, say “Schedule.” All times are U.S. Central.

You can always hear a certain program in one step by saying, “Alexa, ask Radio Talking Book Nebraska to play…” followed by the program name.
