Carly Berlin covers housing and infrastructure for Vermont Public and VTDigger. Previously, she was the metro reporter for New Orleans Public Radio, where she focused on housing, transportation and city government. Her stories have aired on Marketplace, Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Before working in radio, she was the Gulf Coast Correspondent for Southerly, where she reported on disaster recovery across south Louisiana during two recording-breaking hurricane seasons. Much of that coverage centered on the aftermath of Hurricanes Laura and Delta in Lake Charles at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and was supported by a grant from the Pulitzer Center. Berlin grew up in Atlanta and earned a BA in English with a Creative Writing concentration from Bowdoin College in 2018. She’s an avid bird watcher and ultimate frisbee player.
VPR knits Vermonters together with its statewide network, as well as serving “Vermontophiles” in surrounding states, Canada and around the world. We provide a variety of local and NPR and other programming, including two daily news programs, “Morning Edition,” and “All Things Considered,” a daily talk show “Vermont Edition” and our people-powered “Brave Little State” project. Our reporters generate dozens of newscast items and in-depth stories a week. And we maintain a robust website. We are a respected institution in our state, and recognized for innovation in serving our mostly-rural audience. As Vermont’s daily newspapers and commercial broadcasters are struggling and reducing staff, VPR is determined to work with our partners to preserve great reporting in all parts of our state.
