RICHMOND, Va. — In October 2010 the VCU InSight website is moving from this WordPress site to a new home at Virginia Commonwealth University, http://insight.vcu.edu.

The move better uses available university technology resources and enables easier student access. The WordPress site includes 175 story posts since its January 2008 launch. It replaced a traditional website that was online since at least 2006.

VCU InSight is a 30-minute TV news show produced by undergraduate students in the VCU School of Mass Communications that airs monthly on WCVW-TV Richmond PBS. The show began in 2003.
