Put on your KUER socks, slap on your NPR temporary tattoo, and join us in Washington DC for the news junkie tour of a lifetime! Hang out with Rachel Martin and Bob Mondello, gaze upon the studios where Morning Edition is recorded, and witness The Tiny Desk in all its (really quite small) glory. Tour CNN and meet with a CNN reporter, have lunch with Utah’s only DC-based journalist and visit the Newseum—yes, they have a whole museum for news!
DC is also the nation’s capital, and politics and news are intimately linked. So we’ve planned for you to meet the folks responsible for generating news in the first place: you will meet with all six of Utah’s congress people. You will hear from the heads of lobbying groups and the president of the National Education Association. And, you’ll have an evening lecture and dinner at the Supreme Court. Yes, you could reach for the same canape as the Notorious RBG!
Finally, DC is fun! You’ll have free time to explore on your own—find hip restaurants, cozy bars, or simply get lost in one of the Smithsonian museums. There is no shortage of amusements, confusements and news-ments on the Beltway.
