This Sunday morning, on KDKA-TV’s “The Sunday Business Page”, with KDKA-TV’s Money & Politics Editor Jon Delano:

Wild swings in stock prices, on Wall Street, record trading, and investor angst all marked this past week. We’ll talk with financial analyst Rick Applegate, CFP, AIFA, CLU, ChFC – part of Newsradio 1020 KDKA’s “Moneytalk” Report, on the “KDKA Morning News” – and partner at the Pittsburgh office of Cantor Fitzgerald Wealth Partners, L.P. – about what caused such massive selling, record highs and lows, and uncertainty, about the future.

Then, more promising news, about job growth, in the Pittsburgh region. Doug Heuck – program director for “Pittsburgh Today” – a non-profit research organization at the University of Pittsburgh and editor/publisher of Pittsburgh Quarterly – joins us – to discuss an almost three percent increase from last year, in the number of jobs added to the Pittsburgh workforce –including the surprisingly growing area of tourism and hospitality employment.

Finally, an inspiring story about a young veterinarian, who survived Hurricane Katrina – and resettled in Pittsburgh – to start over. Aileen Ruiz. DVM, is now owner of a veterinary hospital called “Big Easy” – with a New

Orleans flair – right in the heart of Pittsburgh’s growing Lawrenceville community. The hospital is marking the 10th anniversary of Katrina, with an expansion of its business – which recently moved to bigger space.

From “the Big Easy” – to the Big Easy Animal Hospital — also means new, young life, and business – for Pittsburgh. You’ll hear Dr. Ruiz explain why Pittsburgh has provided a good ending to a challenging tragedy, for this remarkable woman.
