ABOUT THE GUEST
A graduate of NYU with a Master's Degree in journalism, Mitch Wertlieb has more than 20 years experience in radio news. He got his start as News Director at NYU's college station, and moved on to a News Director (and part-time DJ position) for commercial radio station WMVY on Martha's Vineyard. But public radio was where Mitch wanted to be and he eventually moved on to Boston where he worked for six years in a number of different capacities at member station WBUR...as a Senior Producer, Editor, and fill-in co-host of the nationally distributed Here and Now. Mitch has been a guest host of the national NPR sports program "Only A Game". He's also worked as an editor and producer for international news coverage with Monitor Radio in Boston.
An avid Boston sports fan, Mitch has been blessed with being able to witness world championships for two of his favorite teams (and franchises he was at one time convinced would never win in his lifetime): the Boston Red Sox in 2004 and 2007, and in hockey, the Boston Bruins, who won their first Stanley Cup in 39 years in 2011.
Mitch has also been known to play a music bed or two during Morning Edition featuring his favorite band The Grateful Dead. He lives in South Burlington with his wife Erin, daughter Gretchen, and their mixed lab Grendel. He (Mitch, not Grendel) has been host of Morning Edition on VPR since 2003.

About The Unmentionables
The Unmentionables are Vermont's premier long form improv team. This group of quick-witted, seasoned improvisers has been performing for 4 years throughout New England at bars, theaters, town halls, hotel conference rooms, crepe restaurants, bowling alleys, and even an abandoned Jazzercise studio. In November 2015 they became the MainStage long form improv troupe of Vermont Comedy Club, performing every Thursday at 9:00pm. The team has been featured at The Green Mountain Comedy Festival, The Hartford Improv Festival, and The Providence Improv Festival. Members of The Unmentionables are featured regularly on the “Improv Vermont” podcast (available on iTunes).
