This Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. (NEW TIME!), on KDKA-TV’s “KD/PG Sunday Edition” – with KDKA-TV News Anchor Ken Rice and David Shribman, Executive Editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

On this week’s broadcast – the reality of fighting terrorism – both, at home, and abroad. The latest terror incidents – both bombings, and bombing attempts —  took place, a week ago – in New York’s Chelsea section of Manhattan, and in  Seaside Park and Linden, New Jersey. The suspect – Ahmad Khan Rahami – was arrested, after a shootout, in Linden, New Jersey.

What is the state of domestic and foreign terrorism – and what’s being done – here – and abroad – to monitor the activities of suspected terrorists? We’ll ask Michael Kenney, Ph.D. – Associate Professor of International Affairs, at the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) and Colin P. Clarke, Ph.D. – political scientist, at  the RAND Corporation, in Pittsburgh. Both men are also affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh’s Matthew B. Ridgway Center for International Security Studies.

Don’t miss this important, and timely discussion – Sunday morning, at 8:30 a.m. (new time!), on the “KD/PG Sunday Edition”, on KDKA-TV.

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 Morning News Anchor Rick Dayton substituting for KDKA-TV’s Money & Politics Editor Jon Delano, who is on assignment, this week:

It’s what the Federal Reserve decided NOT to do, at its policy meeting, that made news, this week – keeping short-term interest rates – unchanged – for the time being. However, the Fed said that the case is “strengthening” – for an interest rate hike – possibly,  before the end of the year.

What will that mean – for investors and borrowers? We’ll hear analysis, from Rick Applegate, AIFA, CFP – Partner – in the Pittsburgh office of Cantor Fitzgerald Wealth Partners. He’s also a contributor to the Newsradio 1020 KDKA Morning News. We’ll ask Rick about the differences in economic policy – between Republican Donald J. Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton – who will be squaring off, in their first political debate, on Monday night.

Then, Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse – is helping an amazing, young entrepreneur launch a business that could help save the lives of those suffering a stroke. The entrepreneur is Matthew Kesinger – Founder and CEO of Forest Devices – which has developed a way to cut down the time between diagnosis of a stroke – and the application of emergency medical treatment. AlphaStroke – Forest Devices’ invention — is the brainchild of Kesinger – who is still a graduate student, at Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College – and who temporarily left his medical school studies – to learn the business aspects of the healthcare delivery system. Our guests include Kesinger, Jackie Speedy – Associate Dean for Public Policy and Management at CMU’s Heinz College, and Jim F. Jordan – Vice-President and Chief Investment Officer, at Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse – which is granting Forest Devices $50,000 – for its start-up business and stroke diagnosis product.

Finally, three brothers – who created unusual pickles, to serve, at their restaurant and bar – decided to go into the pickle business, several years ago. Now, the Pittsburgh Pickle Company – which produces its products in the kitchen of a church, in Verona, Pennsylvania – is moving operations to a bigger location, in that town – a former macaroni company building. We’ll introduce you to John and Will Patterson, and Joey Robl – all brothers, and co-owners of the Pittsburgh Pickle Company.

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