This Sunday morning at 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 Sunday’s broadcast:

There will be a major overhaul of the delivery of mental health services, next year – after passage, by Congress, last month, of the “21st Century Cures Act”. The bill’s earliest sponsor was Rep. Tim Murphy, Ph.D. – a Republican, from Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District (Upper St. Clair), and a psychologist, by profession.

Congressman Murphy joins us, this Sunday morning, with some eye-opening information, on how widespread the problem of the administration of mental health care treatment is – in America – and how this recent legislation will try to cut the red tape, in helping those, in desperate need of help.

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.

From Ken Rice, David Shribman, Stacy Smith, John Allison, and the KDKA-TV and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette news teams, best wishes, for a Merry Christmas, a Happy Chanukah, and a Happy New Year.

  1. Delano is anti Semitic like his great uncle. His comment about how the Israelis treat Palestinians was out of line. Get rid of him
