KD/PG Sunday Edition

CBS2-Pittsburgh-8:30 a.m.

This Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m., on KDKA-TV’s “KD/PG Sunday Edition” broadcast – with KDKA-TV News Anchor Ken Rice and David Shribman, Executive Editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

An important broadcast – affecting so many families in Pennsylvania – and the rest of the country . It’s estimated that one out of every eight women – or twelve and a half-percent of all women born in America – will be diagnosed with breast cancer, each year. Mammography is seen as one of the most effective tools to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages – when there is the greatest chance for treatment and cure. Yet, this past week, the American Cancer Society released new, controversial guidelines for mammograms – which recommend that the regular screening age be raised – from 40 – to 45. The Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Association asked the Cancer Society to re-evaluate its decision.

We’ll try to clarify some of the confusion about breast cancer treatment – with David S. Parda, M.D. – Chairman of the Allegheny Health Network’s Cancer Institute, Diana Napper – Founder of the “Glimmer of Hope” Foundation for Breast Cancer Research, at Magee-Womens Institute & Foundation – which raised more than a million and a half dollars for that cause, Wendie Anderson Berg, M.D., Ph.D. – radiologist with UPMC and a breast cancer survivor – herself – and Kathy Purcell, MSW – CEO and Executive Director of Susan G. Komen Pittsburgh.

Please join Ken Rice and David Shribman – Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. (new time, during NFL Football season on CBS), for the “KD/PG Sunday Edition” on KDKA-TV – and a subject vital to those, concerned about breast cancer, and its victims.

The Sunday Business Page

CBS2-Pittsburgh-6:30 a.m.

This Sunday morning at 6:30 a.m., on KDKA-TV’s “The Sunday Business Page” – with KDKA-TV’s Money & Politics Editor Jon Delano:

On this Sunday’s broadcast – the end of an era – as US Airways is absorbed into American Airlines – the result of a merger. The last US Airways flight excluded a flyover of Pittsburgh, even though the city once served as a critical hub for the airline. We’ll talk about the impact of the consolidation of the airlines’ industry — with Associate Professor of Management at Robert Morris University – Marcel C. Minutolo, Ph.D.

Then, we’ll share some memories of what it was like, to work for US Airways – with Doreen Welsh – retired flight attendant – and a survivor of the famous, 2009 “Miracle on the Hudson” crash of US Airways Flight#1549 – on the Hudson River – between New York City and Weehawken, New Jersey.  Doreen – who lives in Ambridge, Pennsylvania – Beaver County — is now a professional speaker, and recounts her experience on that flight – and in the airlines’ industry.

Finally, we’ll tell you about new efforts and technology – to teach the horrors of the Holocaust, to a generation of people, with no personal memory of this tragedy. Our guests include the new Director of the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh – Lauren Apter Bairnsfather, Ph.D. – and Tim Crain – Director of the National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education – at Seton Hill University, in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, Westmoreland County.

The Pittsburgh Holocaust Center recently moved to a new, interactive facility – that will provide the necessary space and tools to bring multimedia education to students and the community. The National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education at Seton Hill – is playing host to an important, three-day conference – from Sunday through Tuesday – which includes an address by Fr. Patrick Desbois, from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. – recently featured on CBS’ “60 Minutes”, for his efforts to use new technology to uncover the horrors of the Holocaust, in what used to be part of the Soviet Union.

Please join Jon Delano for “The Sunday Business Page” – Sunday morning at 6:30 a.m., on KDKA-TV.
