Leadership Change at VPR

A leadership change was announced today at Vermont Public Radio. After 15 years as President and CEO, Mark Vogelzang is leaving VPR. The Board of Directors has unanimously selected Robin Turnau to be VPR's new President.

Mark is leaving for a new venture to increase philanthropic giving to public radio on a national
 scale. Robin, who has been at VPR since 1989 and currently serves as vice president of development, takes over on February 1. 

The announcement was made today during Vermont Edition. Host Jane Lindholm interviewed Mark and Robin about the reasons for the change and what we can expect. You can hear the interview and read more online here.

Mark's accomplishments during his 15-year tenure at VPR are too numerous to count. We'll miss his vision, leadership, and his personal involvement with VPR listeners and staff.  But we're thrilled that Robin will be moving into this new role - her long experience at VPR and demonstrated leadership puts VPR in a great position for the future. Congratulations, Mark and Robin!
