DescriptionAs the name suggests VTDigger (pronounced “V.T. Digger” not “Vermont Digger”) aims to provide deep coverage of local issues in the Green Mountain State. “I wanted to follow stories in-depth” explains Anne Galloway the publication’s editor-in-chief. “Not all of our stories are investigative; but we want them all to go deep.” While it’s not all hard-hitting political stories—the day after Christmas Digger featured a story called “Vermont’s Other Residents” a photo essay about farm animals—the site focuses primarily on politics and state and local public policy.
