The Duval County Jail.

Jacksonville Sheriff T.K. Waters has announced a new health care provider at the Duval County jail. This comes after The Tributary showed an increase in inmate deaths under provider Armor Correctional Health Services. We sat down with Nichole Manna of The Tributary for a closer look.

UF architecture program

Dean Kate Morehead Carol of Saint John’s Cathedral and Ginny Demain Myrick, CEO and president of Cathedral District Jax, spoke with WJCT News 89.9 to discuss the University of Florida’s new graduate program in architecture. This new program will debut in one of Downtown Jacksonville’s most historic churches, the St John’s Episcopal Cathedral.


The new Barbie movie directed by Greta Gerwig has broken several box records. At the same time, breaking the hearts of conservatives who proclaim the film as “woke” and “man-hating.” Our very own Barbie, Catalina Selvagn, “filmed” us in more on this conversation.

Lumen Repertory Theatre will raise the curtain on its second production of its 2023 inaugural season, "No Exit," Friday evening. The artistic director of the theater, Brian Niece, walked us through a preview of this play. Check out their website for tickets and showtimes.
