The Sunday Business Page

CBS2-Pittsburgh-6:30 a.m.

This Sunday morning @ 6:30, on KDKA-TV’s “The Sunday Business Page,” with KDKA-TV’s money & politics editor, Jon Delano:

On this week’s broadcast:

It’s projected that by the year 2020, millennials will represent 75-percent of America’s workforce. But, many companies are unprepared, for this massive change, and could be left behind, as the “new” workers move from company, to company, in their career.

That’s one of the topics, to be discussed, on January 26th, at Pittsburgh’s first, “National Leadership Development Day” – at Pittsburgh’s Google Headquarters, at Bakery Square. We’ll talk with two members of “Solutions 21” — hosts of that conference – “Buddy” Hobart – Founder & CEO – and Tyler Palko – Director of Leadership Development (former quarterback of the Pittsburgh Panthers, from 2004-2006).

Then, a conversation with Paul J. McNulty, J.D. – President of Grove City College, in Mercer County.

Grove City calls itself – “a distinguished, Christian institution, committed to academic excellence, a Christ-centered community, and exemplary value”. What makes Grove City College – different – and could it be the right college for you, or your children?

Jon Delano’s interview will tell you why this college has provided a special, independent kind of learning experience.

Finally, part two, of our look at the controversial, vinyl-covered Sprint billboard, that stands atop Mount Washington. Last week, the leadership of the non-profit organization – “Scenic Pittsburgh”— told us about their objections, to this sign. This Sunday, you’ll hear a very different viewpoint, on this issue, from Jonathan M. Kamin, Esq. – with the law firm of Goldberg, Kamin & Garvin LLP – which represents Lamar Advertising(owners of the billboard space), who leases it, to Sprint.

Please join Jon Delano, for “The Sunday Business Page”, Sunday morning@6:30AM., on KDKA-TV!
