The Sunday Business Page

CBS2-Pittsburgh-6:30 a.m.

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

On this week’s broadcast – the end of an era – as Macy, Incorporated announces that it will close its Downtown Pittsburgh store at 5th and Smithfield – formerly, Kaufmann’s Department Store. What does this mean, for Downtown Pittsburgh retail, can Pittsburgh recruit another department store, (as this move will leave them with no Downtown department store shopping facility) and what went wrong? Our guests include Audrey Guskey, Ph.D. – Associate Professor of Marketing at Duquesne University’s Palumbo-Donahue School of Business – and Tom Windfelder – the last general manager of Kaufmann’s Department Store, before Macy’s took over the Kaufmann’s stores (Windfelder is now an investment advisor representative and partner with Benchmark Financial Advisors & T.Brooks Financial Networks).

Then, changes, in the funding of the popular Pittsburgh Promise college scholarship for qualified Pittsburgh Public Schools students. In order to insure the future of the fund, scholarship levels are being scaled back – from $40,000 to $30,000 – per student – or, from $10,000 to $7,500 a year – per student. Saleem Ghubril – Executive Director of the Pittsburgh Promise – joins us – for perspective, on the success of the fund, and its financial health.

Finally, we’ll celebrate the success of NASA’s nine-and-a-half year, three-billion mile journey to Pluto – and their New Horizons space mission. Our guest is Charissa Sedor – Assistant Manager of the Carnegie Science Center’s Buhl Planetarium.  Pluto – once a planet, then “demoted”, to a “dwarf planet”, will receive its “due” attention, on this broadcast!
