The Vermont standard is Windsor County’s largest and Vermont’s oldest weekly newspaper. Its rich community content, comprehensive news coverage and engaging commentary guarantees that each copy is read by several people each Thursday, bringing its readership to over 12,000 people. The Vermont Standard has published continuously for 158 years, despite floods, fires and other disruptions. We are proud of this record and point to it as evidence of our dedication to our readers and advertisers.
The Vermont Standard’s subscriber base includes many well-informed and affluent readers. In addition to being distributed throughout the county, the Standard is mailed to 50 states and 3 foreign countries. Recently Vermont Standard has added an electronic edition (eEdition). It is a complete electronic replica of the printed paper and is available by subscription.
