In 2018, VPR’s website provided our audience with the ability to look up the number of speeding tickets issued in their town, submit marijuana legalization questions (and get them answered) and page through the results of Vermont’s only poll on statewide issues.
VPR’s multimedia approach helps us be more transparent in the data and sources we use and it brings our audience into the story process. Our website and social media channels let us play with formatting and tone, put the user experience first, and ultimately better connect with our audience.
Below are examples of VPR's multimedia approach in 2018.
