KD/PG Sunday Edition

CBS2-Pittsburgh-11:30 a.m.

This Sunday morning at 11:30 a.m., on KDKA-TV’s “KD/PG Sunday Edition” – with KDKA-TV’s Money & Politics Editor Jon Delano (substituting for KDKA-TV News Anchors Stacy Smith and Ken Rice) and John Allison – Associate Editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

On this week’s broadcast:

Growing concern, over the dangers of the Zika Virus.

On Friday, Pennsylvania’s Secretary of Health – Dr. Karen Murphy – advised residents of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has confirmed a link between the Zika Virus disease in pregnant women, and microcephaly – and other, severe fetal brain defects.

What is the Zika Virus, how is it transmitted, and what is Allegheny County doing – to protect the public health?

We’ll ask Amesh Adalja,M.D., FACP – Infectious Disease physician at UPMC, and a member of UPMC’s Center for Health Security, in Baltimore – about research being conducted by the UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public Health – into the origins and function of the Zika Virus, as well as work, on a possible vaccine, to prevent its spread.

We’ll talk with Dr. Hacker about who is at risk of getting the Zika Virus, and what’s being done, to eliminate areas where mosquitoes, which carry the disease, might breed.

Please join Jon Delano and John Allison, for this important broadcast – Sunday morning at 11:30 a.m. (right after CBS’ “Face the Nation”), on the “KD/PG Sunday Edition”, on KDKA-TV.

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 week’s broadcast – we’ll look at two issues affecting the City of Pittsburgh’s finances and its land development plans.

Since 2004 – the City of Pittsburgh’s finances have been under the watchful eye of a state-created Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority – or – ICA. But questions have recently arisen – about the finances of the ICA – itself – and who’s overseeing that body.

We’ll talk with the Deputy Chief of Staff to Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto – John Fournier – about this issue – and we’ll also receive an update, on ambitious plans to develop part of Pittsburgh’s Strip District – with the Acting Executive Director of Pittsburgh’s Urban Redevelopment Authority – Robert Rubinstein.

Then, Clarion University’s President – Karen M. Whitney, Ph.D. – discusses that institution’s efforts to enrich student learning, increase engagement with the Clarion, Pennsylvania community, and improve the appearance of the campus, and its function. But, all of that – and, the ability of students to be able to afford to go to college – is being affected by the Pennsylvania legislature’s reluctance to approve necessary funding for higher education.  We’ll ask her, about all of this.

Finally, Chatham University’s popular Center for Women’s Entrepreneurship has helped many women achieve their dreams, to create their own businesses. Now, that center is receiving a grant from the Federal, Small Business Administration (SBA) to create a women’s business center, at Chatham. Rebecca Harris – Director of the Center for Women’s Entrepreneurship at Chatham University – and Anne Flynn Schlicht – the new Director of the Small Business Administration Center, at Chatham – will join us, to share their thoughts on this significant part of Chatham University’s mission.

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