Employees Fight Hunger in Vermont

September 29th, 2016

A group of WCVT employees spent the day at Boyer’s Orchard in Monkton 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 1,500 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, Boyer’s Orchard, and Team WCVT!

Service Interruptions Due to Seasonal Sun Interference

September 20th, 2016

Please be advised, beginning in early late September and continuing through the middle of October, disturbances to signal reception may occur when the sun passes directly behind a satellite. The intense energy of the sun overpowers the signal from the satellite. You may experience anything from slight signal degradation to complete signal loss. This usually lasts less than a few minutes, and occurs in the afternoon. Exact dates and times of these outages depend on your geographical location and satellite viewed. This is a natural phenomenon that affects both satellite and cable company reception. For more information, please contact our Customer Service Department at 496-5800.
