If you’re a radio listener in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan region and surrounding areas of Maryland and Virginia, and you tune in during the noon hour, you’ve probably heard The Kojo Nnamdi Show – the top program on the top NPR (National Public Radio) station WAMU (88.5 FM). Avid listeners call the program simply “The Kojo Show.”
The host of this eponymous program, Kojo Nnamdi, has been voted “Best Radio Personality” in Washington City Paper’s Best of DC Poll for five years in a row. He’s been called “maybe the best interviewer in town” by The Washington Post. That’s the cache of Kojo Nnamdi.
So we were honored when Kojo invited RagingWire on his program to talk data centers. Our Corporate Vice President James Leach joined “The Computer Guy” John Gilroy and Kojo to discuss “How Northern Virginia Became the Data Center Capital of the U.S.” It was clearly a hot topic as a number of listeners called in to ask questions and share their views.
Click here to listen to a rebroadcast of the program. You’ll learn about what makes data centers in Northern Virginia so special, the kinds of jobs created by data centers, and the economic development spurred by data centers. The broadcast runs a brisk 34 minutes including call-ins. It’s definitely worth a listen.
Thanks Kojo for all you do. You’re the best!
