Richmond’s Manchester area is seeing revitalization; construction of a traffic circle at an infamous area intersection; possibly moving a statue honoring fallen police officers; VCU police get body cams; monitoring young football players through a high-tech mouth guard; closing the William Byrd Community House; and a NASA scientist returns to her local high school. In-studio interviews with Micah “Bam Bamm” White, a local comedian with a new program to help inmates get business experience; and Will Gilbert, a VCU student (and VCU InSight student executive producer) heading to Qatar as part of an exchange program.

VCU InSight for Oct. 9, 2015

Resident reaction to a local golf course that’s not being kept up; a downtown construction project that will have visitors experience the James River in a whole new way; how residents in one local area can not only call 911, but text; a federal education initiative hits home for area historic sites; school officials consider installing cameras on buses to catch drivers who don’t stop for them; a tour of downtown focused on some of the stranger stories of Richmond’s history; and how a local non-profit advocating cycling is helping charities and offering a cool, new look. In-studio interviews with Nicole Riedel, the Director of Development for Special Olympics RVA; and Brandon Ruffin, a former record-breaking VCU Track and Field athlete.
