Community Conversations

Host Vicki Greene
Sundays – 6 a.m.

Host Vicki Greene returns to WXLO where she started early on in
her radio news career as news anchor and morning co-host.
Starting in the early 1990’s Vicki worked as a news anchor and news director
at stations in Worcester, Boston, Springfield and Concord, NH.
She left radio and worked for one of the world’s largest public relations agencies.
She went on to be the first Director of Communications at the Mass Biotech Council,
the Director of Marketing and Communications at The Discovery Museum
all while keeping one eye on local, regional and national news.

Now, Vicki gets to unleash her passion for getting to the heart of an issue,
talking to the newsmakers – some you may have heard of
and some who may be behind the scenes.
Each week, she has a 30-minute conversation
where guests tell the story behind the story.

On the show, Vicki covers events and issues including the local
and regional economy/impact on your pocketbook,
healthcare, education, art/culture, transportation and more.
