CBS2-Pittsburgh-6:30 a.m.

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:

On this Sunday’s broadcast – the political impact of President Obama’s decision to reject the Keystone XL Pipeline proposal – which would have carried petroleum from Canada, through the Midwest – to refineries along the Gulf Coast. We’ll talk with Aimee Curtright, Ph.D. – RAND Corporation’s Senior Physical Scientist, Associate Research Department Director, in RAND’s Engineering and Applied Sciences Department, and Professor at the Pardee RAND Graduate School campus, in Pittsburgh.

Then, we’ll mark the 50th anniversary – this past week – of an event that plunged much of the Northeast – including New York City – into darkness – for thirteen hours: the Great Blackout.

What caused that major power outage – which stretched into New England and Canada – and what’s changed – since then – to provide better protection against a similar occurrence?

We’ll ask Gregory Reed, Ph.D. – Director of the Electric Power Initiative, in the University of Pittsburgh’s Swanson School of Engineering, Director of Pitt’s Center for Energy, and Associate Professor of Electric Power Engineering.

It’s an enlightening interview, that also considers new challenges the power grid system may be facing – fifty years after the Great Blackout – including the threat of terrorism and hacking of the system.

Finally, we’ll look at the results of a special study, that measured the wellness impact of the presence of a supermarket in Pittsburgh’s Hill District – which suffered without a grocery store, for thirty years. Two years, after the opening of a Shop ‘N Save – how has that supermarket changed the community’s eating and buying habits, as well as its attitude about the neighborhood?

Our guests are Tamara Dubowitz – Senior Policy Researcher at RAND Corporation and its Pardee Graduate School in Pittsburgh – which conducted the study – and Cheryl Hall-Russell – President and CEO of Hill House Association – who also oversees the Hill House Economic Development Corporation – which worked so hard, to bring the Shop ‘N Save to Pittsburgh’s Hill District.

Please join Jon Delano, Sunday morning at 6:30 a.m., for some especially important discussions involving energy and economic development – on KDKA-TV’s “The Sunday Business Page”!
