Vermont Public Radio

In 1975, four Vermonters gathered to create a public radio station for Vermont. National experts tried to dissuade them, reasoning that Vermont was too rural ... See more a state to support a station solely by listener support. Vermonters proved them wrong on every count. Look at us now! Vermont Public Radio was made possible by thousands of Vermonters that volunteered and contributed funds to provide ongoing access to programming that informs, educates and entertains and we're still going strong. For the past decade, the station has consistently ranked as one of the most-listened-to public radio stations in the country, based on radio listening per capita. Currently, more than 26,000 people contribute to VPR. On October 1, 2007 Vermont Public Radio became two distinct services - VPR and VPR Classical. VPR offers news and information programming along with public radio entertainment favorites. And VPR Classical, our expanded network of stations providing classical music 24/7. Vermont Public Radio's WVPR 89.5 FM in the Upper Valley became the first radio station in Vermont to begin broadcasting in HD digital sound on July 19, 2006. Fitting, given WVPR was Vermont's first public radio station. As a community licensee, Vermont Public Radio operates with a state-wide Board of Directors and the majority of its funding comes from local community support.
