All Politics is Local

Tom Sherwood and Mark Segraves return to Hill Center with their celebrated interview series, dedicated to getting to know their guest with a smattering of policy and politics. Mark and Tom welcome Kojo Nnamdi.

Kojo Nnamdi is host of The Kojo Nnamdi Show, a live talk show produced by WAMU 88.5 that airs weekdays at noon. On Fridays at noon, Nnamdi hosts The Politics Hour on WAMU 88.5.

“Maybe the best radio interviewer in town” according to The Washington Post, Nnamdi welcomes a lineup of interesting and provocative guests who offer new perspectives about current events, political issues, social policy, art, science and other topics.  Nnamdi is a native of Guyana who immigrated to the United States in 1968 to attend college and explore the civil rights movement. From 1985 to 2011, he hosted Evening Exchange, a public affairs television program broadcast by WHUT-TV at Howard University. From 1973 to 1985, Nnamdi worked at WHUR-FM, where he served as news editor and then news director, producing the award-winning local news program The Daily Drum.

In 2005, he was named a “Washingtonian of the Year” by "Washingtonian" magazine, saying, “Radio is more fun, more intimate than TV. I always want to make sure people are listening to something that helps them make intelligent decisions about their lives.”  In 2007, Washingtonian named Nnamdi one of the “150 Most Influential People in Washington.”

Tom Sherwood is a veteran local journalist.  He is the "Resident Political Analyst" for the popular Politics Hour on Friday's with WAMU host Kojo Nnamdi.  Tom also is a contributing writer with The Washington City Paper.  Tom was the lead political reporter for NBC4 for nearly 3 decades and formerly worked for The Washington Post.  He is co-author with Harry Jaffe of "Dream City," a Simon & Schuster book on the history of the District and the rise and fall of Marion Barry.  Tom is a frequent guest speaker and moderator at a variety of events in the District.

Mark Segraves is a reporter for NBC 4 News, Host of NewsPlus on DC 50 TV, and Senior Correspondent for WNEW Radio. Segraves is a DC native who lived in Ward 6 for 15 years just blocks from Hill Center. Segraves is a former writer for Voice of the Hill and The Hill Rag. He is the father of two boys who both attend DCPS schools. He's covered District affairs for more than 15 years.
