The Pennsylvania House and Senate held leadership elections this week with larger Republican majorities of 122-81 in the House and 34-16 in the Senate.

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:
On this week’s broadcast – what kind of Christmas shopping season will it be – for shoppers, and merchants? Consumers, who were recently surveyed say that they might be willing to spend more this year – than last Christmas – but, that they are worried about job security, the state of the economy, and their financial “wellness”. Some consumers say they will spend less – than last year. We’ll ask Duquesne University’s Associate Professor of Marketing – Audrey Guskey, Ph.D. – for her thoughts on holiday shopping, and when to get the best deals, on merchandise.
Then, we’ll introduce you to a fascinating place to shop in Downtown Pittsburgh, for Christmas gifts: the Peoples Gas Holiday Market, in Market Square. Our guests include Jeremy Waldrup – President & CEO of the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership – and Kelly Sobczak – from Global Girl Gifts – a vendor, at the Peoples Gas Holiday Market, who practically scours the world, for the most interesting, beautiful gifts.
Finally, the inspiring story of the fight, in Pittsburgh – against ALS – better-known, as Lou Gehrig’s Disease – and the heroic efforts of Suzanne Alexander – who lost her young husband, Neil, in 2015, to that disease – to unlock the secrets of ALS, slow its progression, and perhaps, ultimately find a cure.
Suzanne and Neil – just after his ALS diagnosis – founded “Live Like Lou” – a donor-advised fund of the Pittsburgh Foundation, to raise awareness of ALS, provide comfort and care, to its victims, and support scientific research to study ALS.
Suzanne Alexander joins us – Sunday morning – to talk about a recent donation from “Live Like Lou” – for $500,000 — to the University of Pittsburgh’s Brain Institute – to advance research about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Also with us, is Chris Donnelly, Ph.D. – Assistant Professor of Neurobiology, at the University of Pittsburgh, and a member of the University of Pittsburgh’s Brain Institute and Live Like Lou Center for ALS Research.
Please join Jon Delano, Sunday morning at 6:30 a.m., for “The Sunday Business Page”, on KDKA-TV.
