Donald Graham's grandfather, Eugene Meyer, famously bought The Washington Post at a bankruptcy sale in 1933, and the family has been deeply invested in the newspaper ever since. After stints as a reporter, sports editor and publisher with the paper, Graham now serves as CEO of The Washington Post Company. Kojo talks with Graham about the future of D.C.'s fabled daily, the varied holdings of The Washington Post Company, and his time as a D.C. cop.
