Community Impact Report

COMMUNITY IMPACT REPORT

2018

“VPR is the best. You make us think. You make us care. You remind us that we are all one community.”

~ Jeanie L. and Don C.

Scott Finn

President’s Note

Dear Friends,

It’s been a big year for change in our country and Vermont — and for me as well.

We experienced one of the most tumultuous and consequential midterm elections in recent history. The Me Too movement went global. Concerns over data and privacy reached a fever pitch. Across the country and here in Vermont, we wrestled with issues and effects of race and racism, gun violence and climate change.

Here at VPR, we were reminded that what we offer to our community is unique and essential. The unrelenting news of our time fuels our dedication to provide independent, fact-based journalism while delivering music that creates emotional space for us to reflect and process the realities of our time.

And we saw that value reflected in our reach: VPR had 223,900 weekly listeners to our broadcast stations in 2018*, and we saw record support from our members and business underwriters (thank you!).

That’s good, because there’s more of a need for quality journalism than ever before. Over the past 20 years, the number of journalists in Vermont has dropped by almost half. Meanwhile, VPR has increased its news staff from just three to 21 journalists today.

On our Tell Me More Tour last summer and fall, we met more than 700 people all across the state. In Rutland, we met a woman who couldn’t afford satellite TV or a newspaper subscription. She told us that VPR served as her link to her community, and helped make her new home feel like a real home.

That’s how my family feels about VPR. Before we moved here, I listened to But Why? with my son. My wife and I depend on Brave Little State to answer our questions about Vermont. My teenage daughter usually does not listen to public radio. But on the way home from school one afternoon, we listened to our podcast JOLTED about the averted school shooting in Fair Haven.

She was riveted. She even had her first driveway moment.

At its core, VPR is a public service institution. We are here not to tell you what to think or like, but to provide you with what you need to make informed choices in your life. We do it out of love for our community and a desire to see Vermonters thrive.

Your support makes it all possible. So thank you. Thank you for building this great station, and for challenging us to do even more for Vermont and our region. And thank you for making this new place feel like home.

Gratefully,

Scott Finn

“I’m one of those Vermont kids who felt tormented in the back seat of the car growing up by my parents constantly listening to VPR. Now it’s come full circle, and decades later I’m the one tormenting my own children who groan when I turn the station back to VPR, but who listen curiously nevertheless. Your stories have sparked countless conversations and questions in our family about the world we live in and how to engage in our community in healthy, productive, meaningful ways. Thank you.”

~ Jena, Underhill

OUR IMPACT

“VPR is the only station I listen to during my thirty minute commute to and from the school where I teach every day and I use the fact checked, up to date information to supplement my teaching of current events to elementary students. I trust VPR’s integrity, neutrality, and professionalism and I would not risk the learning of my ten year olds if I did not.”
~ Dawn, Jericho
Scott Finn & Robin Turnau VPR

NEW LEADERSHIP

In May, Scott Finn joined VPR as President & CEO after Robin Turnau stepped down from the role after a 29-year career at VPR, including the last nine years as president & CEO.

Tell Me More Tour VPR

TELL ME MORE TOUR

You listen to us, so we should make a special effort to listen to you. That was the idea behind VPR’s Tell Me More Tour, to travel the state with no agenda — just a determination to listen to whatever you have to say. Over four months in 2018, we met more than 700 people at events in every county of the state. Nearly the entire VPR staff attended at least one event, where we asked three questions: What’s special about where you live? What issues are important to you? And how can VPR can serve you better? While every event was unique, as we reported out on what we learned we were surprised at how many themes resonated across the state. The tour is helping us shape our work into 2019 and beyond, and we’re working to continue the listening beyond the tour, and make it something we incorporate into our daily lives.

Ray Vega joins VPR Friday Night Jazz

RAY VEGA JOINS FRIDAY NIGHT JAZZ

In May, trumpeter, percussionist, composer, arranger and educator Ray Vega joined VPR as the new host of Friday Night Jazz. He’s a senior lecturer at The University of Vermont and currently performs with The Ray Vega Latin Jazz Sextet, The Ray Vega Quartet and The New York Latin Jazz All-Stars. In September, VPR hosted a raucous Friday Night Jazz Pledge Party. Ray performed live at VPR with his Latin Jazz Sextet, with host Jane Lindholm and a live audience. The special broadcast was part of our September membership drive.

VPR Annual Report JOLTED Podcast
VPR Annual Report JOLTED Podcast
Gov. Phil Scott Bill Signing

What can we learn from a school shooting that never happened?

That was the question VPR set out to explore in JOLTED, is a five-part podcast about what happens when a young man plans a school shooting, but gets caught before he shoots anyone. It’s about the line between thought and crime. And, it’s about a Republican governor, in a rural state, who changed his mind about gun laws. We believed an averted school shooting was an opportunity to deeply examine not only the conditions that can lead to school shootings, but more importantly, the conditions that help prevent them.

“I’m a middle school teacher and I used to play a story in a unit for my students off of VPR that was an interview … about the bullying and suicide.”

VPR released the five-part podcast over the course of a month, and it garnered hundreds of thousands of listeners across the country. Vermonters also heard all five episodes on All Things Considered.

JOLTED helped our community more deeply understand the jarring events of early 2018 and how they led to a major shift in Vermont laws. We believe our storytelling helped them understand both what leads to school violence, and how to prevent it.

We heard about the impact of our work from listeners in Vermont and elsewhere: “I am a 2012 graduate of Fair Haven Union High School and also have a parent that works in a school in the same district,” wrote a listener who grew up near Fair Haven. “It’s been a long, confusing and scary year for our community. JOLTED presented important information, and provided some closure for me personally.”

Listeners also got an up-close view of the scarcity of mental health services facing rural families. A psychiatrist noted JOLTED helped her understand how she personally could play a role in preventing school shootings. She said she recognized in Sawyer an “ordinary boy with depression and anxiety in a family/community without the resources to reach him.”

High school and college educators have also used it to spark debate in their classrooms. One student noted the podcast provided insight into the lives of friends, and learned “what different schools are doing to prevent shootings/help at-risk students.”

“It’s a thank you for ‘JOLTED’ … a really great series, not just relative to Vermont but relative to conversations going on in other parts of the country.”

And, the series brought listeners with different ideologies together. “As a progressive, I was able to listen to it with my Republican mother and have a great conversation after each episode,” wrote a nurse practitioner in Vermont. A listener in Washington, D.C., also wrote: “I liked that it presented a tough conversation about gun control in a way that Americans on both sides of the political aisle could understand.”

James Stewart: Timeline VPR

TIMELINE: ELEMENTS

Timeline: Elements is an educational series of podcasts based on the four elements of antiquity – fire, water, earth and air. VPR Classical Host and Timeline Producer James Stewart dove into music, history, art, science and philosophy, drawing connections from different disciplines and time periods.

VPR Giving Tuesday

GIVING TUESDAY

VPR collaborated with the Vermont Foodbank again in 2018 on Giving Tuesday. The one-day campaign helped raise important funds for public media in Vermont while also helping to serve the mission of the Vermont Foodbank. Overall, VPR heard from 1,867 contributors, which provided 22,404 meals to Vermont families who need a leg up.

“We love VPR and the food shelf. Food insecurity could happen to anyone – friends, neighbors, even our family. We are thankful there are organizations and Vermonters that can help and proud to be part of that community!” – Jen and Barry, Hinesburg

VPR INVESTIGATION--WATCH-YOUR-SPEED

INVESTIGATION: WATCH YOUR SPEED

Drivers in Vermont paid over $4 million in traffic fines in 2017. In the spring, investigative reporter Emily Corwin looked into where police issue the most speeding tickets in Vermont. She gathered data statewide and then visited the three towns of Mount Tabor, Plymouth and Bridgewater. The series explored how speeding tickets are issued and processed in Vermont and where the money goes. The data analysis and on-air reports created greater awareness among Vermonters as to variations in enforcement from town to town: the week the series was published, VPR’s website received 32 percent more traffic than it received the same week the prior year.

Are You Ready to Vote?

ELECTION COVERAGE

As part of its Campaign 2018 coverage, VPR produced interviews with all candidates for statewide office during Morning Edition, Vermont Edition and All Things Considered.

One of the key takeaways from the VPR – Vermont PBS Poll was that about a fifth of respondents said they were unsure of who they’d vote for in a variety of the statewide races. Knowing not everyone has the time and resources to follow along for months, VPR’s last-minute Time To Vote guide provided a quick look at some of VPR’s Campaign 2018 coverage, repackaged for last-minute reading before Election Day.

“I absolutely LOVED the “Vermonters: Are You Ready to Vote?” guide. Thank you so much! It was so well done and incredibly helpful to me to find this “quick look” at VPR’s campaign 2018 coverage all in one place. I also listened to some of the interviews and think the interviewers did an excellent and impartial job of interviewing the candidates. I feel fortunate that VPR exists. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication.” – Lucy

VPR-VERMONT PBS PARTNERSHIP

VPR began a new partnership with Vermont PBS that involved a variety of projects developed to provide increased and improved public service to a larger audience.

The first of those projects was the production of the VPR News Minute. The News Minute is weekly, 60-second look at top stories in the news on Thursdays just before the PBS NewsHour. The News Minute is also published on social media. The newscast is taped in VPR’s newsroom each week by Vermont PBS and is hosted by All Things Considered Host Henry Epp.

VPR and Vermont PBS also joined forces to commission two polls that measured Vermonters’ opinions of the candidates and issues in advance of the 2018 election. Coverage included analysis of top issues for Vermonters and name recognition of primary election candidates. The poll was discussed in an episode of Vermont Edition and was the focus of Vermont This Week on Vermont PBS. The joint collaboration brought increased public awareness to a larger audience about the issues of most importance to Vermonters.

In addition to extensive news coverage, the full results were released online, which allowed anyone to explore the polling data and other media organizations to parse and report on it, inspiring even more conversations around the state.

Finally, VPR and Vermont PBS collaborated to broadcast a series of four live candidate debates leading up to the General Election in November. The series was broadcast live on VPR and Vermont PBS, providing a larger statewide audience the opportunity to draw clear distinctions between candidates and help become well informed about their choices.

They Are Us

THEY ARE US

They Are Us is a seven-part special series about mental health in Vermont. Each episode highlighted first person stories from inside the state’s mental health care system, prompting significant feedback from our audience who told us the series hit home.

“I would like to congratulate Erica Heilman on a fantastic job putting together the 7-part series, “They Are Us” about mental illness in Vermont. I found each segment to be compelling and powerful in its message. It’s about time that mental illness is being pulled out of the shadows of stigma, and the deficits of the mental health system in Vermont exposed, so that more can be done to help the Vermonters among us who struggle every day with their illnesses.”

– Robin, Hanover NH

Brave Little State

BRAVE LITTLE STATE

VPR continued to experiment with new ways to engage listeners through our Brave Little State journalism project. Brave Little State works to empower our audience by exploring questions about Vermont submitted and voted on by listeners, making our journalism more inclusive, more transparent and more fun. In 2018, listeners pushed us to answer difficult questions, such as “Why are there so many African-Americans incarcerated in Vermont?” The show also explored what happened with a Utah developer’s plan to build an eco-utopia for 20,000 people on 5,000 acres in four towns, the history of French-Canadian immigration in Vermont, what it’s like to work three jobs and answered an often-asked question about whether Vermont is really losing young people.

“I truly love the podcast Brave Little State! I am an educator that values incorporating place based content into my lessons, but I am new to Vermont. But the the questions covered let me learn about this great state, answering questions I have also wondered about myself!”

– Julie, Worcester

Brave Little State also won a national Edward R. Murrow award for Best News Documentary for its 2017 episode about the history of Vermont’s whiteness and stories from people of color about what it’s like to live here.

But Why Podcast

BUT WHY?

Why is fire orange? How was the universe created? Why do people get cancer? That’s just a handful of questions tackled in 2018 by But Why, VPR’s podcast for curious kids. For the bi-weekly podcast, kids are invited to record and send their questions, and Host Jane Lindholm and Producer Melody Bodette seek out the answers. To date, But Why has received questions from kids in all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico, and 50 countries. But Why episodes have been used as educational tools in New York City public schools. Downloads of the show grew 82% in less than a year, ending the year averaging 200,000 downloads per month.

In 2018, But Why was part of the first “Mega Awesome Super Huge Wicked Fun Podcast Playdate”, a children’s podcast festival produced by Boston’s WBUR. But Why appeared before an audience of several hundred people and explored the world of owls and other birds. VPR is bringing the live show around Vermont in 2019.

“Our whole family LOVES the But Why podcast. We all learn new things from it and it’s so great to have a podcast with real kids voices and the content shaped by real kids questions rather than by adult ideas of what kids want.”

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS

VPR addressed a number of community issues and needs with special reports.

Vermont Elections

STATE GOVERNMENT COVERAGE

VPR continued its in-depth coverage of state government in 2018. From Montpelier, Statehouse Reporters Bob Kinzel and Peter Hirschfeld followed the twists and turns of the legislative process, including historic gun control legislation, the legalization of recreational marijuana and the budget impasse between the Legislature and Gov. Phil Scott.

Vermont Marijuana legalization

MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION

When Vermont became the first state to legalize marijuana through an act of the Legislature, VPR reporters covered this story extensively. Reporters covered debates in the House and the Senate and the bill signing by a Republican governor that allows possession of up to an ounce of marijuana. Specifics of the law and a variety of detailed information were published at our website.

Vermont Immigration

IMMIGRATION

As part of a New England News Collaborative series called “Facing Change,” VPR continued its reporting on the several thousand migrant farm workers living in Vermont. The reporting found an increase in immigration enforcement and a rise in arrests and detentions by the U.S. Border Patrol in Vermont, New Hampshire and in northeastern New York. The workers are a significant part of the state’s farm economy, so much so that twice a year the Mexican government travels to Vermont to assist its citizens.

Another story focused on the deportation of a longtime Vermont resident back to Kenya, due to administration policies on immigration issues.

Racism in Vermont

RACISM IN VERMONT

VPR provided comprehensive coverage of the decision by Bennington Rep. Kiah Morris not to seek re-election to the Vermont House due to being the target of hate online and in everyday life. The reporting included the investigation by the attorney general into the incidents.

Various incidents of racism led VPR to include questions in its public opinion survey on Vermonters’ perceptions of racism in the state.

In a special report by Reporter Peter Hirschfeld, VPR uncovered a disturbing picture of workplace harassment at the Vermont Psychiatric Care Hospital in Berlin, where some African-American staff members said they had been subjected to racist comments by co-workers. Hirschfeld’s reporting included the subsequent investigation, and on the reaction by Gov. Phil Scott, whose administration reviewed the conditions.

Vermont Edition

VERMONT EDITION

Vermont Edition regularly addresses key community issues. A few highlights from last year include:

“I’m a big fan of Vermont Edition; to me it is the most important single thing that VPR does toward knitting the state together and reinforcing our civic life by letting all listeners get the chance to ask questions and share their own ideas and opinions about intrinsically Vermont issues.” – Alan, Burlington

AWARDS

VPR has won more than 90 awards over the last decade for news coverage, programming, website, fundraising, workplace and overall excellence.

Vermont Public Radio and its staff received significant industry recognition in 2018, including five national journalism awards.

National PRNDI Awards

Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards

Vermont Public Radio won four regional Edward R. Murrow Awards from the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) for best news documentary, hard news, excellence in writing and best website.

Seven Daysie Award for Best Radio Station

Each year, readers of the Burlington-based Seven Days weekly paper pick their favorite restaurants, artists, stores, festivals, journalists, personalities, and media in the area where Seven Days is delivered. 2018 was the 11th consecutive year that Vermont Public Radio has been voted Best News Radio Station.

Journalism Fund

October 1, 2017 – December 31, 2018

Established in 2010, this special fund enables reporters and producers to innovate, take risks, and respond to opportunities. The Journalism Fund is designed to support a range of initiatives and is administered by an in-house committee of VPR staff. Funded projects are held to the same high level of independence and integrity you expect from VPR, thanks to the firewall between donors and decisions about news projects, reporting, and editorial standards.

Anonymous (1)Donna and Jake Carpenter 

Phillips Legacy Society

The Phillips Legacy Society recognizes supporters who have made a provision for Vermont Public Radio in their will, estate plans or other planned gifts. VPR extends its heartfelt thanks to nearly 250 supporters who have made this special commitment to our vision and mission.

But for those reasons above I HAVE to donate – you keep me updated day to day throughout the chaos of my amazing yet hectic life and you do it in a thorough, interesting and efficient manner that connects me to my community, state and world. So thank YOU!”
