Kojo is a gift to the DC Area. He shines a light on the real lives and diverse interests of the people who live here. He is a great interviewer and gets the most interesting useful information from his guests.

The best show on radio/tv

What a refreshing and engaging show! I love The Kojo show with the various topics and points of view. Objective view of current affairs and relevant topics everyone can relate to. Thank you and a nice change from MSNBC and Fox. Relaxing while also engaging!
