Monday, May 13, will be proclaimed Kojo Nnamdi Day by D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser in honor of Kojo Nnamdi’s 20 years on air with WAMU 88.5, Washington’s NPR news station.

According to a release, for more than two decades, The Kojo Nnamdi Show has been at the center of critical conversations about issues that matter to Washingtonians, tapping into local stories and engaging communities around the region. WAMU has marked the show’s 20th anniversary with a yearlong series of live events and special content touching on how the region has transformed over the past 20 years and exploring what will shape the future.

The release added that the anniversary “will culminate with a Kojo 20 Celebration on June 6 at The Howard Theatre. The evening program will highlight the unique offerings of Washington, D.C., including diverse and delicious flavors, live entertainment, and light-hearted predictions about the future of the region from local luminaries and newsmakers.”

“Kojo Nnamdi embodies everything it means to be a Washingtonian,” said Mayor Bowser. “His deep connection to our community has made him a master of his craft, promoting a thoughtful and diverse discourse that benefits all of our residents. D.C. is proud to call him our own, and I’m proud to declare Monday, May 13, as Kojo Nnamdi Day.”
