VPR In Brattleboro, VPRCL In Rutland

88.9 WVBA went on the air in Brattleboro today.  This new station brings VPR news, information and entertainment to 32,000 listeners in Windham County.

We are also thrilled to announce the launch of VPR Classical in the Rutland area!

VPR Classical is now broadcasting at 92.5 FM , reaching a population of 60,000, including the communities of Rutland, Proctor, Pittsford, Castleton, and Fair Haven.

Listeners can now enjoy comprehensive programming from VPR, with news and information on VPR News at 88.7, and classical music 24 hours a day on VPR Classical at 92.5.

It has been a long-time dream of ours to bring VPR Classical to the Rutland region. Whether you appreciate full symphony orchestras or chamber ensembles, live concerts or world-class recordings, string ensembles or opera, VPR Classical brings you the best classical music from around the world, 24 hours a day – placed in a strong local context by our local hosts, Walter Parker and Joe Goetz. Plus, you’ll hear local and international musicians performing live from our studio.

You can find more VPR Classical stations at I hope you’ll tune in and let us know what you think!


  1. I receive a fairly solid signal from 88.7 Rutland at my home in Maplecrest, NY, west of the Hudson River. We're in a high valley, surrounded by the Blackhead Mountains in the Catskills.
    I can only receive VPR in a small fades as I move the radio to another side of the room. But it's consistent enough to make VPR my preferred NPR station. Hurrah for RF propagation!
    Also love the BBC button on your player. Very convenient.
    Love Vermont. Love VPR.
