“Charlottesville Inside-Out is a true local gem,” says Dan Rosensweig, former CVIO show guest, and President/CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville. “Professionally, I am so grateful that Terri and the crew have given Habitat a forum to let viewers know about the work we are doing to provide safe, affordable housing opportunities locally. Personally, I love hearing about all of the great things that are happening in our one-of-a-kind town.”

CVIO, a community funded WHTJ PBS television show, highlights the people and places that make Charlottesville and the surrounding area such a special place to live and to explore. Segment topics include art, education, film, music, local food, local farms, sports, science, the humanities, the environment, technology, and the important work of numerous nonprofits in the community.

“The production style of Charlottesville Inside-Out has evolved over the past decade, but the ties that bind the show together are the wonderful stories that are in never-ending supply throughout the Piedmont region,” says Shawn Freude, CVIO Director, Co-Producer and Editor. “Directing the show is fun and challenging because we’re always on location and never know quite what to expect from the situation until we get there. Thankfully, I have crew of outstanding videographers and sound techs who help to pull it all together.”

“As an educator I am just thrilled that a program like Charlottesville Inside-Out has been supported and sustained so warmly in our community. Terri’s effervescent spirit, her insightful eye and deep investigative persistence, couples with a broad compassion to serve those of our community well. The program has created a beautifully unique window into Charlottesville, and in our case, an especially positive light shining through on our local education efforts,” says John Hunter, World Peace Game founder, teacher, and former show guest.

The event is sponsored in part by The Paramount Theater and Harvest Moon Catering. Proceeds from the concert will benefit future seasons of Charlottesville Inside-Out.

Watch the premiere of CVIO Season 10 on Thursday, January, 12, 2017 at 8:30pm!

Charlottesville Inside-Out airs on Thursday nights at 8:30pm and on Sundays at 12:30pm on WHTJ PBS and WCVE PBS. Programs also stream on-line at ideastations.org/watch/charlottesville-inside-out

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.)
