No matter how much makes it to our-dc, there’s always more to learn and something new happening. If you’d like to stay on top of new events, politics, and studies in and about DC, newspapers, radio, television, and research organizations can keep you on top of the DC beat.

Newspapers
DC is filled with local papers covering neighborhoods, politics, and special interests. Read newspapers outside of your zip code for new places to visit or to learn of issues relevant around the community.

Research
While the nation’s capital is home to many national research organizations, groups also conduct research about the District itself. Check out the historical and empirical analysis about DC residents and neighborhoods, demographic trends, and public policy issues.

Radio & TV
Cable television stations provide local news channels, DC government television, school council meetings, arts programming, and public access. Radio serves as another outlet for local voices. For example, on WAMU, Kojo Nnamdi covers a variety of DC political and cultural aspects of DC. Shows such as Sunday Night Go-Go on WKYS highlight the best of DC local music and culture.
