KD/PG Sunday Edition

CBS2-Pittsburgh-8:30 a.m.

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

On this week’s broadcast:

A welcome respite – from the chronic, political gridlock on Capitol Hill:

The overwhelming passage, this past week, by the U.S. House and Senate, of the “21st Century Cures Act”.

It aims to cut the bureaucracy, increase sharing of medical research and data, and provide a boost in funding, for the study and treatment of diseases, like cancer.

That act will be signed into law – next week – by President Obama.

Our guests – David Parda, MD – Chair of the Allegheny Health Network’s Cancer Institute – and Edward Chu, MD – Interim Director of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute – part of UPMC Cancer Centers – will talk about how this legislation could ultimately improve the life expectancy of cancer patients.

Please join Ken Rice and David Shribman, for this important broadcast – Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. – on the “KD/PG Sunday Edition” – on KDKA-TV.

Sunday Business Page

CBS2-Pittsburgh-6:30 a.m.

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

It was such a massive criminal computer network operation, that it stretched around the world – infecting almost half a million computers – worldwide.

The Pittsburgh office of the F.B.I. and the United States Attorney’s office for Western Pennsylvania – working together – were recently able to destroy a sophisticated, dangerous, illegal international criminal cyber network.

We’ll have the intriguing story of “Avalanche” – responsible for malware attacks – across the world – using ransomware and banking trojans – to advance money mule schemes, and money laundering.

Our special guest is Keith Mularski – Supervisory Special Agent over the Cyber Squad, in the Pittsburgh office of the F.B.I.

Then, a critical, financial problem, for the organization, upon whom so many people depend – not only, during the Christmas season, but all year long:

The Salvation Army.

This Christmas  — the Salvation Army’s red kettle fundraising campaign – so important, to its mission – is running almost $170,000 behind its collections for the same period, last year.

Major Deborah Sedlar – Divisional Commander for the Salvation Army in Western Pennsylvania – talks with Jon Delano – about what that could mean – to their ability to assist others – and how you can provide a helping hand.

Finally, two Carnegie Mellon University graduates have developed a new, phone app, that could speed up the time between ordering your favorite drink – at your local watering hole – and having it served, to you.

We’ll introduce you to Sachal Lakhavani and Lee Selkowitz – co-founders of the SRVD app – which is finding more and more customers and tavern and restaurant operators, who have subscribed to this service.

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

One Response

  1. It’s Sunday 2/12/17 & my dad has your show on his TV. You & your guests are discussing the illegals, sanctuary cities, & their devastation that Donald Trump was elected president. You & your guests were painful to listen to; shocking actually. It was disappointing to hear such one-sided views that didn’t necessarily include facts but emotions. Once again I’m reminded why I never watch TV news shows. Not everyone in Pittsburgh is a liberal.
