Charlottesville, Va. - Season 12 of “Charlottesville Inside-Out” (CVIO) premieres January 10, 2019 at 8:30 p.m. on WHTJ/WCVE/WVPT PBS. With beloved host Terri Allard, the show will continue to highlight some of the region’s most unique people and places.
Over the course of 12 episodes, Allard and her crew will introduce viewers to a diverse list of local guests and organizations, including a couple who started a wildlife conservation center to help save animals from around the world, an author and architect who explores Virginia ruins, and a UVA professor who teaches philosophy, sociology, history, and music through his Hip Hop class.
The show will also profile several area nonprofit organizations whose work includes protecting the Rivanna River, focusing on the health and well-being of children, and providing support services to area refugees and special immigrant visa holders.
“I love working on CVIO because I thoroughly enjoy getting to know people and finding out why they do what they do,” says Allard. “Our show guests are always very passionate about their work, mission, or project. This season's first episode, for example, features fiddler Lovell Coleman, who just celebrated his 95th birthday and his 90th year performing in our community. He recently fell and bruised his shoulder. He was supposed to take a break from his fiddle, but his wife Edith said he still picked it up and played it every day. And well-known and respected nature photographer, Robert Llewellyn, has made it his mission to figure out how everything in the world works. These are just two examples of community members who help to make this area such a vibrant, interesting, and culturally rich place to live and explore. And there are so many more!”
Allard’s excitement is contagious, and her guests tend to share her enthusiasm for the Charlottesville region and all it has to offer. They also appreciate CVIO’s ability to capture and share their stories with a wider audience.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the upcoming Charlottesville-Inside Out season,” says Heritage Theatre Festival Artistic Director Jenny Wales. “Few shows in our region celebrate the incredible people and experiences our community has to offer, and it was an honor to be chosen. Terri Allard and her team have such a deep understanding for and appreciation of art, and of artists, which showed in their visit with us and, I am sure, will be obvious in the story they air. I can’t wait to see it, and can’t thank them enough for all they do to tell Charlottesville’s stories."
Kat Imhoff, President and CEO of James Madison’s Montpelier, also sees the value in CVIO.
“We're honored to be featured and are excited to be sharing the rich history of our community,” says Imhoff. “Now, more than ever, Charlottesville and our region need to illuminate our positive stories and shine the light on local assets. Terri and the CVIO team have done a wonderful job bringing Montpelier, and other local organizations and individuals, to the forefront.”
