Watch Our New Video – Connecting Family, Friends & Neighbors

November 24th, 2014

It’s been ten years since we’ve produced a long form video so this year we partnered with Mt. Mansfield Media to tell the “WCVT story.”  Our goal was simple: Capture what makes us unique and get at the essence of what makes us different from the large conglomerates.  Thank you for being a part of our Vermont story.

It’s a marvel that meandering through these rural villages and farms is a fiber optic digital communications network as powerful as any in the world.  And in these small Vermont towns people seeking quality of life are connecting to the network to offer exceptional Vermont products and services both nationally and worldwide.

The story of how local businesses have found success on the back roads of Vermont goes back more than one hundred years.  Its the the story of the birth of the telephone and one tenacious Vermont family.

Employees Fight Hunger in Vermont

October 7th, 2014

A group of WCVT employees spent the day at Chapin Orchard in Essex in early October and picked apples to fight hunger in Vermont.  During this past harvest season, companies throughout Vermont picked or bought apples at local orchards to donate to the VT Foodbank. The WCVT crew picked over 500 pounds of apples for the cause. The program is a win-win for everyone. Fresh, local fruit is distributed to needy families throughout Vermont, local orchards benefit with increased sales and exposure, and companies experience a day of teamwork and fun.

Great job VT Foodbank, Chapin Orchard, and Team WCVT!
