KD/PG Sunday Edition

CBS2-Pittsburgh-6:30 a.m.

This Sunday morning at 6:30 a.m., on KDKA-TV’S “KD/PG Sunday Edition” broadcast – with KDKA-TV News Anchor Ken Rice and John Allison – Associate Editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

On this Sunday’s broadcast:

Macy’s announced , last week, that it would close approximately forty stores, which would furlough almost 4,000 employees at shopping malls, across the country – including Century Three Mall – in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania – near Pittsburgh. Macy’s blamed everything from the warm, winter weather, to disappointing earning – for its decision.

What is the state of retailing, in America, with major growth in on-line shopping?

Our guest – the last general manager of the legendary, Downtown Pittsburgh Kaufmann’s department store, before it was taken over, by Macy’s (who then, closed that store,    

last fall) – Tom Windfelder – gives us his perspective. He’s now with BENCHMARK Financial Advisors, in Sewickley, Pennsylvania.

Then, the amazing story of a retired postal worker from Valencia, Pennsylvania – Butler County – who taught her adventurous daughter, lessons about personal safety, many years ago – and then, turned those lessons into a video game and phone app – which is available, through Google Play, and I-Tunes.

We’ll introduce you to Rosemarie Thompson and her grown-up daughter, Linda, creators of “Street Smart Kidz”!

Finally, the truly inspiring story of a woman, who lost her seven-year-old son to heart disease, and turned his love for the arts into a passion of her own – to establish an arts center in Pittsburgh’s Hill District community – for urban youth who have the same dreams as Amon Cashmere Harris . Amon’s mother – Tyian Battle – joins us – to talk about the great success of her non-profit, ACH Clear Pathways Center (named for Amon) – which serves at least 150-children – and which has established a capital campaign, to renovate another building, to expand its programming.

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