WHQR's Rachel Keith sits down with Dr. Aswani Volety, UNCW's new chancellor. And WECT investigative reporter Michael Praats helps unpack the history of the Wilmington crime lab — and new allegations about why the Sheriff's office took over managing it.

On this episode, WHQR’s Rachel Keith sits down with Dr. Aswani Volety, the newly appointed Chancellor of the University of North Carolina’s Wilmington campus. They’ll talk about his strategic plan for the University, and a host of challenges — from finances to diversity.

And WECT investigative reporter Michael Praats joins us for the latest on the lawsuit against top law enforcement officials in New Hanover County. We’ll trace the lawsuit’s origin to the change in management in the Wilmington police department crime lab — and what was allegedly behind that shake-up.
