August 25, 2017: TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

August 26, 2017 at 5:30 am

It’s been more than 20 years since TWA Flight 800 crashed 12 minutes after take off, off of Long Island, leaving death and unanswered questions in its wake.  We’ll look at the claims, and the testimonials, that we may have never gotten the true story of how and why 230 people died that fateful night. With the new school year comes hopes and dreams of college for high school seniors and juniors and their parents.  But the New York Times’s Frank Bruni has some sobering news:  where you go is not who you will be.  He’s here to discuss his best-selling book “Where You Go Is Not Who You’ll Be:  An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania.” The lovely and talented Broadway icon Kristin Chenoweth stops by for a visit to discuss her latest album, “The Art of Elegance.”
