For his last show Friday Buzz host, Jonathan Zarov, is travelling back to the first shows. Mike Wassenaar is currently the president and CEO of the Alliance for Community Media — a national non-profit that supports community television and other community based media organizations in Washington DC. From 1991 to early 94 he served as WORT’s news and public affairs director. The 8 O’Clock Buzz started in 1993, and Mike was there at the beginning and helped create the Buzz–in a format that’s remained more or less the same for nearly 3 decades. Mike joins Jonathan to talk about the formation of the 8 O’Clock Buzz.
