Off-camera troubles at VPT

Posted: Updated:

There is more drama off-camera than on-camera these days at VPT.

The Vermont Public Television board of directors met Monday to address concerns over a series of private meetings about a personnel matter. The board's audit committee admitted those meetings violated the open meeting law. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting has frozen funding for VPT while it investigates. And now it appears the personnel matter driving the closed meetings includes allegations of sexual harrassment by CEO John King.

Paul Heintz wrote about VPT's troubles this week for Seven Days. Full disclosure-- WCAX's Gina Bullard is a paid contributor at VPT. She appears in their program "Outdoor Journal." And Heintz is an occasional paid contributor on their political roundtable show "Vermont This Week."
