Hear Chris Kromm on WBAI 99.5 NYC today to talk Katrina anniversary and Gulf Recovery

Much of the media coverage of the four-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina has either focused on what happened during those fateful days in 2005. But as one commentator pointed out, "they're remembering Katrina -- and forgetting the Gulf."

To the extent that the media does focus on present-day recovery, it's largely to give an upbeat assessment of where things stand and what Washington is doing.

But that doesn't square with the Institute's new report, released last week, which surveyed more than 50 community leaders in the Gulf Coast -- and found many frustrated with Obama's and Congress' lack of commitment to Katrina recovery.

To hear more about these issues, tune into New York City's WBAI 99.5 FM at 7pm today as I talk with Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg about what's happening in the Gulf Coast today.
