My Appearance on Green Mountain Mornings [07.15.14]

podcastRegular readers will now I've had a weekly appearance on local radio program Live & Local for 7-plus years ... but Live & Local is no more (read more about that, here). In it's place is Green Mountain Mornings, which airs 6 to 9 a.m. Mondays through Fridays on WKVT 100.3FM and 1490AM (in the Brattleboro area). However, my weekly contributions on local news, topics and the journalism industry will continue, with host Chris Lenois. In my first appearance on the show, we discuss: Entergy's payment to Vermont to offset the closing of Vermont Yankee and how that money should be used; Brattleboro Community Television's national recognition and community news coverage in general; parenting columnist Jill Stahl Tyler; and the variety of ways the Reformer publishes different types of information.
