VTDigger.org is a statewide news website that publishes daily reports on state government, politics, consumer affairs, business and public policy. We also publish in-depth stories with occasional investigative pieces, video and audio, in addition to raw information in the form of press releases and government documents.
VTDigger.org is a project of The Vermont Journalism Trust, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The two organizations merged in October 2010. VJT became the official publisher for VTDigger.org in March 2011.
Our daily beat reporters cover politics, education, health care, criminal justice, business and the environment. We publish eight news stories a day and three to four investigative pieces a month. VTDigger, with 14 reporters and six editors has the largest news operation in Vermont. We have 700,000 monthly readers and we reach another 200,000 readers a month through our AP-style distribution service, which is used by 13 local daily and weekly newspapers across the state.
VTDigger.org publishes new content six days a week, Monday through Saturday.
In 2020, VTDigger was commended by the New York Times for building strong social trust which has helped Vermont meet the unprecedented challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic with relative success. We received four national journalism awards in 2020 from LION Publishers, including Best Coronavirus Coverage. Sen. Patrick Leahy also honored VTDigger in the nation’s Congressional Record for our outstanding Covid coverage.
