Kojo is a DC Treasure
Being a local WAMU listener, I can't say enough about the excellence of Kojo's show. He has done so much in bringing to light serious issues facing our region, from Baltimore to Richmond.
Kojo's show is one of the most entertaining and interesting on the radio. No questions about it.
Fantastic Regional News Show
I love my Kojo. We moved about a year ago and I have to subscribe to Kojo to keep me up to date on all the DC news, politics, and goings-on. Kojo asks such intelligent questions and is so easy on the ears.
