VPR launches new classical station

Vermont Public Radio has launched a new music station called VPR Classical, a brand new classical public radio service broadcasting on 88.1 FM in the Connecticut River Valley.
When VPR began in 1977, much of the broadcast day was dedicated to classical music. Today VPR provides a mix of news, information, classical music, entertainment programs and jazz, and many listeners have told us that they would love to hear more of both music and news.
The solution is for VPR to provide two services - one for news and information programs and one that features classical music. This vision of the future will allow us to better serve current and new listeners. VPR Classical is the beginning of the realization of this dream, and the next step in providing our listeners with the variety and quality of programming that they have come to expect from Vermont Public Radio.
