VPR's annual Commentator Brunch event for our Broadcasters Club members was held on Saturday, May 3, at The Essex Resort and Spa. At this event, VPR commentators give very brief – 2 minute – readings on a common theme: "In Plain Sight."
The Commentator Brunch events are popular with staff, commentators, listeners and guests; audiences average around 200 people. The voices and perspectives heard at the brunch are both diverse and entertaining.
This year's theme, "In Plain Sight," prompted some to reflect on surprising discoveries and others to consider missed opportunities and times past.
During the holidays, VPR will air the 2014 Commentator Brunch Sampler during Morning Edition and All Things Considered beginning Monday, Dec. 29 at 8:50 a.m. and continuing through Thursday, Jan. 1 at 5:50 p.m.
