VTDigger is moving to 97 State St. in Montpelier, across the street from the Capitol Plaza Hotel. Our former location was on Main Street.

Our new office (on the second floor) gives us better proximity to the Statehouse and more space for meetings with sources, readers and supporters. For the first time, our reporters and editors will be in one room. The business staff will be together in an adjacent office.

In a few months, we plan to offer public news meetings for readers and members of VTDigger. We want your feedback, tips and ideas to help make VTDigger’s watchdog coverage of state government, politics, business, the environment, health care, education and energy even stronger. You know us online; we want you to know us in person, too.

The move is one of a number of changes we are making to improve our service to readers. This fall we are putting the finishing touches on a web redesign; we will be posting our campaign finance database; and we are launching a reader membership campaign.

As soon as we are settled into 97 State St., we will be announcing an open house this month. We hope you’ll drop by.

Anne: Your strategy of questioning our leaders and being watchdogs is incredibly important in objectively reporting the news. The effort is quickly noticed and very much appreciated by all. You may be only 5’2’’ tall, but you’re recognized as a titan in stature and a highly respected journalistic leader when it comes to objectively keeping your readers informed. Additionally, the platform you’ve created that allows your readers to vent in response is the best thing to happen in Vermont media in a long, long time for both your commenters and those running the state. Where else can the Governor and… Read more »

As one of the early subscribers and supporters for VTDigger I find it amazing how far your have come in such a short period of time. I remember when it was just little you a few years ago. You and your now larger staff are doing wonderful work and it feels so good to this every day citizen to know that not only can I post a commentary but I can also get an occasional editorial published and it will be read state wide. Thanks so much Anne. You have made a huge difference in my life.

Best wishes to you, Anne, and to all your team! It will be nice to have you closer to the State House – and I look forward to attending one of your readership meetings (even if I am 5/5″)! Cheers.

Good to see you upbeat and expanding. In my research for stories across the state I see, every so often, the need, the backup, the finances, for investigative journalists to work hard and long on the project. If you go that route, you need more support.
you should have a gift for your new office. If I didn’t send you a Lifetime of Vermont People, I will do so.
