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.
