VERMONT EDITION GOES DAILY BEGINNING AUGUST 13 ON VPR

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. Public radio favorites such as Car Talk, Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, and A Prairie Home Companion will be on the VPR news service, along with locally produced music programs My Place, All the Traditions and jazz. The transition is expected to happen this fall.VPR can be heard at 107.9 FM in Burlington, 89.5 FM in Windsor, 88.7 FM in Rutland, 88.5 FM in St. Johnsbury, 94.3 FM in Bennington, 92.5 in Manchester, 94.5 in Brattleboro, 95.3 in Middlebury, 94.1 in Montpelier and online at vpr.net.VPR Classical can be heard at 88.1 in Norwich, 93.5 Bennington, 103.9 Hanover, 106.9 Manchester, 99.5 Middlebury,95.1 in Sunderland/Manchester, 99.5 Newbury, 106.9 Woodstock and online at vpr.net.Both VPR and VPR Classical are also available in HD Digital Radio in northern Vermont and the Upper Valley.last_img read more

Profession and market development or policy and status quo? The competition for the election of a new director of the Zadar Tourist Board has been announced

first_imgAfter the previous director of the Zadar Tourist Board, Ante Rados, resigned, the Zadar Tourist Board announced a tender for a newThe competition states that the candidate must have at least three years of work experience in the field of tourism, have completed at least a specialist graduate professional or graduate university study, make a proposal for its work program of the tourist board for the next calendar year and speak at least one foreign language.But in the whole story all this is less important, as well as diplomas and various recognitions, etc.… the only thing that matters is concrete market experience, knowledge and vision of development. What someone has done so far, what projects he has worked on and led, and practical market experience. Of course, in the whole story we should talk about market development and market processes, not political functions, but it’s all up to us. Do we want market and strategic development or status quo and inertia. We are either growing or stagnant, ie we are losing pace with the competition.”Mine will be the last” – Drazen Grgurovic, President of the Tourist Board of the Tourist BoardIt is interesting that for Zadarski list, the Deputy President of the Tourist Council, Mr. Dražen Grgurović, stated that his last decision was on the new director of the Zadar Tourist Board. “Everyone is talking about whether politics will interfere in this competition. Of course they will, but with only 50 percent, it is simply the same everywhere in the world. That ratio is always 50:50 because the profession is involved with 50 percent when selecting candidates, and politics with 50 and that is the most normal thing in my opinion. I’m just replacing the mayor in this position, I’m not from the profession, but that’s why there are people in the Tourist Council who will take care that the future director protects the interests of tourism, and mine will be the last ” Grgurovic told Zadarski list.Who’s crazy here? What kind of democracy, profession, Tourist Council when Mr. Grgurović as the Deputy President of the Tourist Council, otherwise a doctor of general medicine by profession and who himself declares that he is not competent and professional, decides who will be elected. What, then, is the meaning of the competition? Pro forme, how to satisfy the procedure?And then we wonder how to proceed? Not at all. One is politics, the other is the market and strategic development, and it is on the latter that we fall the most.In any case, the deadline for submitting applications with evidence of fulfilling the conditions of the tender is 15 days from the publication of the Tender (August 09, 2018) in Zadarski list, Croatian Employment Service – Zadar Regional Office and on the official website of the Zadar Tourist Board.Side dish: PUBLIC TENDER FOR SELECTION AND APPOINTMENT OF THE DIRECTOR OF THE TOURIST OFFICE OF THE TOURIST BOARD OF THE CITY OF ZADAR | 09.08.-23.08.2018.Related news:ANTE RADOS RESIGNED IN THE POSITION OF DIRECTOR OF ZADAR TZlast_img read more
