The journey of a thousand miles… January 10, 2010Posted by Chris Stover in Journalism.

OK, so it’s about 257 miles from Philadelphia to Charlottesville, Va. But the journey still begins with a single step.
Posts have been sporadic (or nonexistent) as of late thanks to my move to Virginia to work at CBS 19 and the Charlottesville Newsplex. Tomorrow, I’ll begin at the station as a Web producer and reporter.
My station is also pretty unique. The Newsplex is a group of network affiliates housed in one complex — CBS 19 (the flagship, WCAV), ABC 16 (WVAW) and FOX 27 (WAHU). The station is just more than five years old, and it’s the only country to have that combination of affiliates under one roof.
And that’s that. The plan is to try this out for a while and to determine what I’d like to do with my life. I’ll update every once and a while with behind-the-scenes information from Charlottesville.
For now, that’s the story. We’ll see how it finishes soon.
