As Election Day approaches in the Maryland, a candidate for Montgomery County Executive and one for Governor of Maryland join us for the Politics Hour.
Guest Host: Jennifer Golbeck
Generations of local Washingtonians grew up getting their television news from Jim Vance. Neighborhoods changed over the years, new residents moved in and old moved out, but Vance’s nightly place on NBC 4 remained constant before he died this past weekend at 75. We reflect on Vance’s life and legacy in local Washington – and the barriers he broke as an African-American anchor delivering news to a majority African-American city when so few people who looked and sound like him were on the air.
