Morning Anchor – 5 to 10 a.m.

Nathan Hager brings more than a decade of news experience in and around Washington, D.C., to mornings on All News 99.1, WNEW. He arrived in the nation’s capital just after New Year’s 2000, as the morning writer on what was then D.C.’s only all-news station, WTOP.

He rose rapidly through the ranks, gaining experience along the way, on the editor’s desk, on the street as a breaking news reporter, and in the studio as an anchor.

Today, he’s excited to be a part of your morning on the new choice for news, traffic and weather in Maryland, Virginia and the District.

Nathan was born in California, spent his teen years in Washington state, and graduated magna cum laude from Washington & Lee University with a Bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism and English. When he’s not staying on top of the news (and even when he is) he spends as much time as he can with his wife, son and daughter.

Free Flicks an Alternative to Playing the Ticket Game for ‘Ender’s Game’

The movie adaptation of Ender’s Game finally arrives in theaters this weekend, and hordes of fans who grew up on Orson Scott Card’s tale of a little boy with potentially world-saving video game skills will be crowding the multiplex. You could fight for a seat, or you could beat the crowds and see a wide array of free movies this week, some based on other best-selling books, others just silly comedies. A few movies from Hollywood’s Golden Age are screening as well.
