City Paper is not for tourists
Attention, sports fans! City Paper “Cheap Seats” columnist Dave McKenna will be the guest during the 12:00 hour of WAMU’s Kojo Nnamdi show. And guess what he won’t be talking about! Instead, McKenna will be on to discuss the sorry state of D.C. Public School sports, a subject he’s chronicled at length over the years—and in a lengthy cover story last week that detailed the recent decline of varsity high school football in the city. Over the years, McKenna’s reporting has also focused on the system’s shabby treatment afforded to female athletes, the plight of school soccer players who don’t even have fields to play on, and the recent triumphs of Friendship Collegiate Academy, a charter school that has become the city’s best football program.
