District Talk 4.1. 2013

In this special edition,  District Talk takes on politics and public policy. We sit down with two candidate’s vying for vacated at-large seat on the city council. Also, our reporters head down to the Supreme Court to get the latest on the two landmark cases concerning gay rights that the court took up last week.

Locally, we get the latest on a luxury hotel that is set to be built in the Adams Morgan neighborhood–we talk to shop owners and longtime residents of the neighborhood to find out what they think about the new establishment. Finally, the new Dean of American University’s School of Communication stops by the studio to talk about the changing media landscape and provide an update on the school’s new building that is set to open its doors next spring.

This show was produced by Colin Campbell and Rachel Rea . Anchors for this special edition of District Wire News were Henry Kerali and  Julia Brommel.
