COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) - The president and CEO of Vermont Public Radio is stepping down after eight years on the job.

The 52-year-old Robin Turnau, who has spent nearly all of her working life at VPR, announced Tuesday she will be stepping down in March.

She says she plans to take time off to consider her future plans.

VPR (https://bit.ly/2w1MaoO ) reports that under Turnau’s leadership, the station’s broadcast and digital audiences have continued to grow. She also oversaw the recently completed $10 million “VPR Next” capital campaign, which will be used to expand the station’s Colchester headquarters and fund new programming and news initiatives.

Peggy Williams, the chair of the VPR board of directors, says the board hopes to find a new CEO by early March.
