Vermont Public Radio announced Tuesday that President and CEO Robin Turnau, who has led the station since 2009, plans to step down in March.

“Reaching this decision has been very difficult for me,” Turnau, a Charlotte resident, said in a statement released by VPR. “I care deeply about VPR and it has been an integral part of my life for the past 28 years. Every one of those years has been incredibly rewarding, and waking up and coming to work each day continues to be a joy. I’ve been working at VPR for more than half my life and I realized it was time for a new challenge.”

Turnau, who started working at VPR in 1989 as membership and volunteer coordinator, said she has no plans for what she will do after stepping down.

The announcement comes as the station recently wrapped up a $10 million capital campaign to pay for a large expansion and renovation of VPR’s Colchester headquarters and to establish a fund to bolster programming.

“She has led our beloved institution during a time of intense media disruption,” VPR Board chair Peggy Williams said in a prepared statement. “Thanks to her dedication, hard work and professionalism, VPR is stronger than ever and poised for an even greater future. She has kept our focus firmly on doing what’s best for VPR’s audience.”
