Across the Fence is a daily, 15-minute television program co-produced by University of Vermont Extension and WCAX-TV, Channel 3. It is the only program of its kind in the United States, and airs weekdays at 12:15 p.m. on WCAX. The majority of programs are videotaped in the studio in advance of airing, with a studio host. Some programs and segments are videotaped on-location for later broadcast.

The daily Across the Fence audience is approximately 18,000 to 20,000 households, ages 45+, and from across Vermont, northern New York, western New Hampshire and southern Quebec.

Across the Fence covers a wide range of issues and topics; however, its primary goal is to inform viewers about activities being conducted by University of Vermont faculty, staff and students which benefit viewers and their communities.
