Richmond Confidential: Year Three

on September 5, 2011

Today marks the beginning of Richmond Confidential’s third year.  Every fall, first-year graduate students at Berkeley take up the challenge and privilege of reporting the news, and telling the stories of Richmond. Sixteen full time reporters will be covering business, health, politics, education, crime, culture, sports and environment, seven days a week. You’ll probably be hearing from them, very soon. Our students come from California, New Jersey, Arizona, Ohio, Mississippi, China and Kashmir. Please help them to understand what’s happening around them as they begin their work.

Your news tips, comments, both on the site and on our Facebook page, are vital to the success of the site. Be a part of it. Help us make the site more valuable and useful to you and your neighbors. Richmond Confidential works best when it creates a public conversation in which you all take part.

    This is a great site with very in depth journalism. Its also a wonderful opportunity for the graduates. I commend you all who take the time out to bring truth to the forefront about my beloved city of Richmond and also not being afraid of helping to find answers to the violence.

    Thank you Richmond Confidential
