The Point


It took Vermont Public Radio six years to best the Point and Champ, but since 2008, the state’s public-radio affiliate has remained tops among Seven Days readers. Could be the ample local news VPR has to offer, or its twice-daily talk show “Vermont Edition,” or maybe readers are addicted to “Prairie Home Companion,” “This American Life” or “Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell Me!” Likely, it’s all of the above. What listeners may not know is that VPR won six regional Edward R. Murrow Awards this year — including one for its reporting on the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips, the Vermonter who was held hostage by Somali pirates in 2009. We’re happy to know the station’s Daysies stickers “are on the wall when you first come in [to the office],” according to station president and CEO Robin Turnau (pictured), “and then you get to the official radio awards.” Recognized as one of the “most listened to and most supported public stations in the country,” Turnau points out, “VPR couldn’t do it without member support. So, thanks!”
