Terri Hallenbeck on two decades as a Vt. political journalist

Terri Hallenbeck started work for the Burlington Free Press in 1998, where she served as copy editor and assistant metro editor. She joined the paper’s capital bureau from 2005 to 2014, when she left to join Seven Days, where she was the staff writer covering state politics until November 2017, when she left journalism to work for Middlebury College. She talks about the gubernatorial campaigns she has covered, how she persuaded Gov. Peter Shumlin to give her a final interview, her experience reporting one of the first stories about a patient who used Vermont’s death with dignity law, and the changing face of journalism in Vermont.
