Metro General Manager Paul Wiedefeld talks about the future of WMATA and what reopening will look like. And D.C. Councilmember Vincent Gray walks us through city budget and gives us an update on building a hospital east of the Anacostia River.
Note: the Kojo Show is pre-empted today by special coverage of the Mueller hearings on NPR.
Call in and share what’s on your mind. We’re getting local reactions to all the news of the day, and we know what’s at the front of your mind already: Robert Mueller is testifying before Congress, and because this is D.C., you can expect bars to open early and watch parties to pop up across town.
Of course, other things are happening too. An undercover investigation is shining light on D.C.’s status as the nation’s hub for ivory, and the hyperthermia-related death of a Montgomery County hiker is a reminder of just how dangerous heat waves can be.
What are we missing? It’s your turn to set the agenda.
Join the conversation by calling 800-433-8850 at noon or tweet at us @kojoshow.
