August 13th is a very special day for Vermont Public Radio! We went on the air 35 years ago today, bringing public radio to Vermonters for the first time. It's also the 5th anniversary of Vermont Edition becoming a daily program! To celebrate, we put together this slideshow of VPR through the years:
Back then, people said Vermont was too small and rural to support a vibrant public
radio service, but today we’re one of the most listened-to and
best-supported public radio stations in the country. Thank you for
proving them wrong!
