Each week, the C-VILLE news team joins reporters from Charlottesville Tomorrow at WTJU 91.1 FM’s on-Grounds radio station for Soundboard, an hour-long, straight-from-the-source news show that touches on the big stories of the week.

This week’s program included an interview with the organizer of an upcoming panel discussion about the future of UVA in the wake of the summer’s turmoil on Grounds, details on City Council’s new plan to roll out a program that will pay people to act as “Downtown ambassadors,” the adoption of a master plan for McIntire Park, a look at Charlottesville’s growing status as a tech startup hub, a discussion about the challenges Virginia’s climate poses to winemakers, and a preview of C-VILLE’s upcoming festivals issue, due on news stands September 11.

Click play to listen to last week’s show. Then tune in from 9 to 10 am Fridays, and check Friday afternoons for the recorded version.
