CNN Headline News Reports on Slugging
Slugging received national news coverage on CNN Headline News on 8 May 03 at approximately 8:20 pm EST. During the three-four minute segment, the CNN news anchor discussed the amazing slugging phenomena occurring in Washington DC and Northern Virginia.  Also discussed were its many advantages and benefits to the local area. Hopefully, my interview presented slugging in the best way possible and that viewers were left with not only a good impression but a willingness to at least try slugging.
