We meet Dionne Reeder, a business owner running for D.C. Council, and the new chair of Virginia's Republican Party, Jack Wilson.
Howard University is considering selling the spectrum of the school’s public television station, WHUT, in an upcoming FCC auction. It’s a rare chance for Howard to earn hundreds of millions of dollars in exchange for a station that some say serves a diminishing audience. For others, the potential shutdown of WHUT, the first African American-owned public television station in the country, is a local tragedy. Kojo, who got his start as a public media host at WHUT, speaks with guests on both sides of the issue.
