WCVT Stowe VT to drop classical
Wed Jun 4 12:30:51 EDT 2014
Sad day. I liked the A/B choice as I drive in and around Vermont a lot. The
morning program on WCVT is particularly good (6-8 a.m.)
Ken Squire's team put out a great product and are the last bastion of
commercial full service local radio to the region.

VPR's website mentions the Green Mountain State's only commercial classical
station, WCVT 101.7 in Stowe, will soon change formats, and it's said VPR's
Classical network already has the state well covered. The station (owned by
Radio Vermont; WCVT is also heard on 102.5 in Montpelier) is claiming the
new format will be in line with the local focus they've had over the years.
In Boston of course commercial classical station WCRB went non-commercial
after being acquired by WGBH. I don't know how many commercial classical
stations are left.
