As we approach the end of another year at Vermont Public Radio, I want to thank you for making VPR a part of your life. At a time when newsrooms are shrinking and classical music is disappearing from the radio, VPR is more essential and relevant than ever.
In my 2013 President’s Letter, I outlined some of what listener support made possible this year, including:
• In-depth and independent news coverage from VPR and NPR, both on the air and online
• More than 20 live performances and interviews on VPR Classical
• Lively new programs like the VPR Café, TED Radio Hour, Student Composer Showcase, and Dorothy’s List, our new book club for young readers.
The programs and projects are diverse, but the common thread is you. Your financial support has had a real and powerful impact, making Vermont Public Radio an extraordinary resource that informs, inspires, and connects our region.
We hope VPR earned your appreciation in 2013. Please make a tax-deductible contribution to help us serve you even better in 2014. Visit VPR.net to invest in another great year of Vermont Public Radio. You can also call 1-800-639-6391 to make your gift by phone.
Again, thank you for being a part of our community. I wish you the best for the season and all of us at VPR look forward to serving you in the year to come.
