KD/PG Sunday Edition
This Sunday morning at 11:30 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, the aftermath of the release, this week, of the results of a Pennsylvania state grand jury investigation – showing that over a forty-year period, hundreds of children were sexually abused, by at least fifty priests and other church personnel – in the Altoona-Johnstown Catholic Diocese.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane said these findings were NOT an indictment of the Catholic Church – as an entity. She promised that her office will continue to investigate this case – which includes not only the crimes that were allegedly committed, but also, a cover-up, by leadership of that Diocese, to prevent the cases of abuse from being revealed to proper religious and legal authorities.
Our special guest – this Sunday – is David A. Zubik, DD – Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh – who has expressed sorrow over this case, and who will be leading a “Service of Apology” on Monday, March 21st – at Pittsburgh’s St. Paul Cathedral, in Oakland – which – in part – will provide the opportunity for those “who have been harmed by the Church, in any way” to pray with him.
The Pittsburgh Diocese is NOT involved in the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese sexual abuse scandal.
Please join Ken Rice and John Allison, for this important broadcast – Sunday morning at 11:30 a.m.,– on the “KD/PG Sunday Edition” — right after CBS’ “Face the Nation” – on KDKA-TV

The Sunday Business Page
This Sunday morning at 6:30 a.m., on KDKA-TV’s “The Sunday Business Page”, with KDKA-TV’s Money & Politics Editor Jon Delano:
Downtown Pittsburgh’s Market Square is in the midst of a big revitalization. One of the crucial pieces of the project is a brand-new, Hilton Garden Inn Pittsburgh Downtown, which opened, this week, and has added 196-more hotel rooms, to Downtown Pittsburgh. We’ll talk with the developer of this, and other major Downtown Pittsburgh properties – Lucas Piatt – President and Chief Operating Officer of Millcraft Industries – about his latest achievement.
Then, a new weapon, in the fight against the “Brain Drain” in Pittsburgh (when some of the best and brightest of our college and university students graduate – and then, look for jobs – elsewhere) – developed by the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA)’s Johnson Institute for Responsible Leadership.
Under the Institute’s leadership program – students become engaged with corporate boards and non-profits, in the community, and are also connected to potential employment, that will keep them in our area.
Our guests are Kevin Kearns, Ph.D. – Director of the Johnson Institute for Responsible Leadership – and Marina Duane – a recent graduate of both the Institute and the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at Pitt, who is now working as a specialist, in the Office of Data Analysis, Research, and Evaluation – at Allegheny County’s Department of Human Services.
Finally, the legacy of Pittsburgh’s most famous “neighbor” – public television’s Fred Rogers – lives on – through Pittsburgh’s “Good Neighbor Awards” – which will be presented on March 16th, through the sponsorship of the United Way and the Fred Rogers Company. These awards will honor ten, local organizations who help to make Pittsburgh a “very special” place – through their commitment to the workplace and community volunteerism.
Fred Rogers reminded us, some years ago, of his own mother’s advice: that even, during times of disaster, “look for the helpers. You will always find helpers – so many caring people, in this world.”
Our guests are Rebecca Lucore – Chief of Staff of Covestro, LLC—a company that is receiving a “Good Neighbor” Award – and Paul Siefken – Vice-President of the Fred Rogers Company.
Please join Jon Delano – Sunday morning at 6:30 a.m. – for “The Sunday Business Page” – on KDKA-TV!
