first_imgVermont Native Jane Lindholm to Host New Daily NewsmagazineVermont Public Radio is breaking new ground this August 13th. The state-wide public radio service is launching a daily news magazine, Vermont Edition, with new host Jane Lindholm. The new program, airing weekdays noon-1 p.m., has grown out of the weekly Vermont Edition which VPR began in 2005.”Listeners have been asking for a daily regional news program for a long time,” says VPR President and General Manager Mark Vogelzang. “We took small steps, first launching the five minute Midday Report, then a weekly version of Vermont Edition. We’re very excited about providing listeners with a robust daily mid-day news magazine.”The daily Vermont Edition will bring listeners more news and conversation about issues affecting their lives, plus a bit of the unexpected. The program will be broad-reaching, covering issues, art, culture and music in Vermont and the surrounding region.”We’re going to consider the context of current events through conversations with newsmakers and people who make the region buzz,” says Lindholm. “We’ll go behind the news, diving into what makes this region unique.”On Fridays, VPR’s veteran journalist Bob Kinzel leads a discussion on politics, government and considers the week in review. Reporter Steve Zind, who served as host of the weekly Vermont Edition, continues with the program, serving as the program’s editor. And the program will keep its signature “slice of life” feature at the close of each broadcast. That might include a competition for a new peace song or a tongue-in-cheek report from the black fly festival in Adamant; a moving essay or a live performance and interview from Vermont’s music scene.Lindholm, 28, joined VPR this summer having served as director and associate producer of Marketplace, public radio’s award-winning national business program. Born in East Middlebury, Jane graduated from Harvard University with a B.A. in Anthropology. She began her career writing and editing for “Let’s Go Travel Guides.” In 2001, Jane joined National Public Radio (NPR) as an editorial/production assistant for Radio Expeditions, a co-production of NPR and the National Geographic Society. She’s also worked with NPR’s Talk of the Nation and Weekend Edition Saturday.The debut of the daily Vermont Edition falls on the 30th anniversary of Vermont Public Radio’s first broadcast day. It also launches as Vermont Public Radio prepares to expand to two distinct state-wide services: one offering news and cultural entertainment and VPR Classical, featuring classical music 24 hours a day.

The project of the Cultural and Tourist Route “Roads of the Frankopans” is coming to an end. Will it come to life in the market?

first_imgA noble family whose origin is connected to the island of Krk, and they have expanded their influence to the area of ​​Kvarner, part of Lika, and part of the interior of Croatia. As in addition to the historical heritage and significance of the Frankopan family for the entire Kvarner, we have inherited many castles and castles, and a project for the development and revitalization of the Cultural and Tourist Route “The Ways of the Frankopans ” The Frankopan princes of Krk have left a deep mark on Kvarner, and due to their exceptional international influence, many consider them the most important family in the history of Croatia, and the best word to describe them is diplomats. The project holder is the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, and the partners are the cities of Rijeka, Kraljevica, Bakar and Čabar, Čavle, Lokve and Vinodolska municipalities and the Diocese of Krk, the Natural History Museum of Rijeka, the Krk Cultural Center, the Rijeka Tourist Board and the Kvarner Tourist Board. The total value of the project is HRK 64.116.001,04, and the EU grant amounts to HRK 47.306.235,33. The cultural and tourist route “Frankopan Roads” includes 17 castles, fortified towns and castles and 3 sacral complexes. The route is divided into four territorial units that emphasize the diversity of the landscape of the Kvarner region, namely the island of Krk, Gorski kotar, Rijeka and its surroundings and Vinodol. The aim of the project is to develop a cultural and tourist product whose contents will attract more visitors to the locations of castles that were not in the foreground of the tourist offer of the Kvarner region and thus revive the less developed parts of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.  The project protects the cultural heritage of the Frankopan family in the Kvarner region and creates new socio-economic value through its tourist valorization.center_img More about the Cultural and Tourist Route “The Ways of the Frankopans ” find out HERE The project ends at the end of 2019, and the Cultural and Tourist Route “Frankopan Roads” will give new added value to the project Rijeka – European Capital of Culture 2020. The first phase took place in the period from 2005 to 2008, when ten Frankopan castles in the Vinodol valley were invested in the reconstruction; The second phase of the project lasted from 2013 to 2016, within the EU project HERA from the IPA program of Adriatic cross-border cooperation, when the reconstruction project was extended to Rijeka, Krk and Gorski kotar, or a total of twenty facilities, with the intention of creating cultural and tourist routes that will permanently fit the objects into the cultural life of the wider social community.

After the renovation and revitalization of certain castles and castles, and the definition of a tourist product, now remains the most important step – that the Cultural-tourist route “Roads of Frankopan” come to life “with full lungs” on the market as an interesting rounded tourist product. The form is there, now we need quality and interesting content and storytelling. The history of the Frankopan princes of Krk lasted more than five and a half centuries: members of this noble family were the bearers of political, social, economic and cultural development in their area, primarily in the area of ​​today’s Croatian region Kvarner.last_img read more
