Hello. Is Charlottesville, Virginia a good place to live for a young college graduate making $24,000 to $26,000 annually without any assistance and/or does not qualify for any financial assistance? What is it like to live there? Can they financially survive in the area making $11.00 to $12.00 dollars per hour? Be honest.

Their employer is Gray Television Inc - WCAV-TV/Charlottesville Newsplex (CBS 19 News). If anyone knows information about this employer beyond what is out there on the Internet and their boss, news director, Mr. Val Thompson, that would be great.

Yeah, it can be a dead board at times.

Charlottesville is a college town and it's not unusual for some students not from wealthy backgrounds to have to also work to support themselves in similar paying jobs. Like any city most live with roommates in order to make housing budgets work at that level of pay, and is something I would recommend anyway as a newcomer to a city minus any social connections. In other words I think they would be fine and find it possible to live fairly comfortably for someone in that age group. I know nothing of the employer but would feel somewhat comfortable as a major network affiliate that it's a good stepping stone to a career in TV/Broadcasting if that's the goal.
