Covering The Upper Valley & Northeast Kingdom
Charlotte Albright is a familiar voice to most VPR listeners. It'll soon become much more familiar.
Charlotte has covered the Northeast Kingdom for VPR News for a number of years as a free-lance reporter. She's fit reporting in with her duties as a professor at Lyndon State College.
But now Charlotte has joined the VPR News staff and she'll have expanded responsibilities. Charlotte will continue to cover the Kingdom from her home in Lyndonville. But she'll also cover the Upper Valley, up and down both sides of the Connecticut River from Windsor County north.
Charlotte has a long history in public broadcasting. She worked at the Maine Public Broadcasting Network for 15 years where she was host and producer of MPBN's weekly public affairs television program, MaineWatch.
When she moved to Vermont in 2006, Charlotte produced features, stories and series for VPR News while teaching journalism at Lyndon State. She'll be teaching a reduced course load at Lyndon while she expands her reporting from the Upper Valley and the Northeast Kingdom.
If you've got a story that you think Charlotte should know about, please be sure to send her an email. Charlotte will be based at VPR's studio in Norwich.
