Robert Letovsky of the Saint Michael’s business faculty has been a guest on Vermont radio news programs to discuss various topics in recent months: He was on WVMT AM 620 to speak with hosts with Charlie Papillo, Ernie Farrar and Lisa Nagle regarding the tax reform debate going on in Washington this week. He also was on Vermont Radio Station WDEV’s show Common Sense Radio on Oct. 2 for a discussion on the topic: “What can we learn from teacher strikes this fall, about education reform? Professor Robert Letovsky and Rob Roper explain.” Robert is an occasional guest host on the show as well. Robert also has been a regular guest on local television news reports when business news breaks in the greater Burlington area or across Vermont, such as this Fall over reports that Vermont will no longer be the only state without a Target store, once a planned new one opens next fall at South Burlington's University Mall, in the space now occupied by a BonTon store. Eva McKend, WCAX news anchor, sat down with Robert to ask about the significance of the news during a newscast. He also earlier was interviewed by reporter Kristin Kelly of WCAX TV Channel 3 concerning Amazon's proposed second headquarters and southern New Hampshire's bid for it.
