WRP purchased The Charlotte Citizen in May 2011 and, by September, expanded coverage to Hinesburg under its new entity, The Citizen. As the fresh face in town, we harmonize neighboring hometown happenings into one convenient publication, distributing subscription-free to every Charlotte and Hinesburg home as well as area businesses. As Charlotte is ranked among the top 10 most affluent cities in Vermont, The Citizen provides advertisers a rare avenue for marketing precisely to Vermont’s highest-income consumers. We are grateful to have been welcomed into these vibrant towns, as our publication only prospers through community support.
The Citizen delivers the latest news directly from municipal meetings; Police, Fire and Rescue, and Parks and Recreation Departments; as well as Charlotte and Carpenter-Carse Libraries. We work to serve our towns with free calendar postings and nonbusiness classified listings. The Citizen stays connected through www.thecitizenvt.com, Facebook, and Twitter.

The Shelburne News has been a community staple for more than four decades, first published in 1967 as “Shelburne: A Newsletter” by resident Phyllis Deming. The paper transitioned into a weekly publication in 1992, now distributed free-of-charge to every Shelburne residence and area business. As Shelburne is ranked the third most affluent city in Vermont, we provide advertisers with a rare avenue for marketing precisely to Vermont’s highest-income consumers.
Shelburne News delivers the latest news directly from municipal meetings; Police, Fire and Rescue, and Parks and Recreation Departments; as well as the Pierson Library.

Destination VT Magazine
Destination VT hit shelves in 1999 as a monthly publication supported by the Burlington International Airport. Undergoing a 21st-century transformation, Destination VT became a quarterly magazine in 2013, providing both Vermont natives and transplants, day-trippers and vacationers, with a snapshot of the Green Mountain State’s artistic and cultural landscape. Each issue features local restaurants and activities, talented artists and writers, as well as socially-responsible Vermont companies. The magazine meets its readers from Vermont’s Welcome Centers; lobbies of area hotels, restaurants, and supermarkets; and 24/7 via www.destinationvt.com, Twitter, and Facebook.
