About Us

The Assembly is a digital magazine about the people, institutions, and ideas that shape North Carolina. Founded in 2021, we feature interesting, deeply reported, nuanced stories about our state. 

We’re telling big stories and giving our journalists space to be ambitious. We want everything published at The Assembly to surprise, inform, and leave you with a better understanding than when you started.

Julia Wall produced, shot, and edited this half-hour program, and frequent contributor Dwayne Ballen is the host. The show takes you from Statesville to Burgaw, with in-depth reporting on issues that matter in our state. 

​​You can watch it on either PBS NC or the PBS App. More info and air times here.
