Thanks for being so supportive. In my virtual absence, I have been working bridge the gap and educate others about the District through other mediums, particularly radio. When I am not fulfilling the obligations of my internship at NPR Weekend Edition, I am trying my hand as a radio personality.
My good friend, Richard Fowler gave me a great opportunity on the night of March 9th, 2012. I was a guest host for his show, The Richard Fowler Show, on We Act Radio 1480 AM. The topic that night was the state of education in the District. I talked with Andre Davis, an educator in the D.C. Public School system, Kenneth Ward, executive director of the College Bound Program, and Valarie Strauss, Washington Post education columnist. They each added great value to the conversation.
Click this link, take a listen, and let me know what you think. There is more great material on the way. Thanks for all of your support.
