TV 20 Debuts New Political Show, The Washington Report
Florida A&M University’s (FAMU) TV20 has added a new political show to its weekly programming, “The Washington Report.” This show is a 30-minute program that analyzes the politics and policy decisions that lead to new legislation at both the state and federal level. Anchored by John Washington, attorney and director of the FAMU Pre-Law Program, the program airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m.
“The program offers viewers an understanding of how politics and policy concerns influence legislation,” said Ernest Jones, general manager, FAMU-TV 20. “We believe our viewers will appreciate the informed discussion and analysis this program will provide.”
Janeia Daniels, an attorney and assistant dean of the College of Law at Florida State University, and the Dean of the FAMU College of Law LeRoy Pernell join Washington as highly regarded panelists on the program.
“This is a different kind of program from the personality driven programs we often see,” said James Hawkins, dean of the FAMU School of Journalism and Graphic Communication. “We are so fortunate to have such a highly regarded team to share their perspectives about legal matters of the day.”
