WXDU News, Sports, and Information Tonight (9/6) 6:00-8:00

The Endless Frontier is up first on tonight's schedule at 6:00. Tune in to learn about the latest studies that examine the role gene changes play in the evolution of species.

Then at 6:30, as Americans head to the backyard this weekend for the last barbecue of the summer, we'll join BackStory with the American History Guys for a look at the history of meat, on "Rare History Well Done: Meat in America." In this episode, the Guys explore the roots of the manly practice of backyard grilling, how meat became central to the American diet, the impact of technology and legislation on the modern meat industry and why it's never okay to put ketchup on a hot dog.

Next, stay tuned for WXDU Sports at 7:30. Martin Kang will be talking Duke women's soccer: he'll have a rundown of Duke Nike Classic action over the weekend, including the women's squad's game against California this afternoon, plus he'll cover the team's home opener against William and Mary on August 30 with a recap and post-game comments. Tonight's show will also include Duke Football news, with coverage of Thursday's season opening victory over Tulane, as well as the latest on Blue Devil field hockey, volleyball and men’s soccer.
