ABOUT THE SHOW

Wright on the Edge is a news/talk radio show hosted by the no-nonsense, self-described rebel Wendy and her diplomatic, millennial niece, Kristine. Sharing their thoughts about timely topics dealing with self-improvement, social justice, and pop culture, the two incite provocative discussion from all angles.

Callers from different races, religions, cultures and lifestyles chime in with comments that range from wise, to controversial, to downright foolish! However, the goal is for all to walk away enlightened in their understanding of issues that affect all of us in sometimes very different ways and empowered to take action.

Wright on the Edge broadcasts weekly from WOL 1450 AM, Radio One’s flagship station in the DC metro area.
