On this week’s program:

It’s a mixed, economic report card, for the City of Pittsburgh and Southwestern Pennsylvania – with unemployment, down, but a drop, in population, in both areas.

Why is our economy and population – in some areas – stagnant?

We’ll ask Doug Heuck – Director of Pittsburgh Today – part of the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Social & Urban Research – and also, founder, editor, and publisher of “Pittsburgh Quarterly” Magazine.

Then, as a preview of Sunday night’s 2017 Tony Awards, on CBS and KDKA-TV (8:00PM.), we’ll talk with Van Kaplan – Executive Producer of Pittsburgh CLO – about that theatre organization’s commitment to the production of new material, on Broadway.

In 2015, Pittsburgh CLO helped to finance the creation and production of “An American in Paris” – featuring the timeless music of legendary composers and lyricists George & Ira Gershwin. “An American in Paris” won four Tony’s, including best choreography, orchestration, lighting, and scenic design, in a musical.

Van Kaplan will also tell us about the remainder of this summer’s Pittsburgh CLO season.

Finally, a new, innovative, on-line, Master of Education Degree in Athletic Coaching, will help Point Park University students develop well-rounded, coaching skills, that can be passed on, to their students, at all levels of education. Our guests include Darlene Marnich, Ph.D. – Professor and Chair of the Department of Education, at Point Park – and Chivas Whipple – a Point Park graduate – who is now assistant basketball coach, at Westminster College, in Mercer County – and who is helping to design this program.
