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 continuing struggle to improve airline service to Pittsburgh International Airport. Porter Airlines announced – this past week – that it is adding daily, non-stop flights between Pittsburgh and Toronto and its Billy Bishop City Airport. However, at the same time, Delta Airlines announced that it will be eliminating a non-stop flight – between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. We’ll talk with the Chief Operating Officer for the Allegheny County Airport Authority – James Gill – about what’s being done, to keep pace, and get ahead of the game, on this issue.

Then, what the Federal Reserve DIDN’T do – that’s keeping investors guessing, about interest rates, and investments. PNC Financial Group’s Senior Macroeconomist and Senior Vice-President – Augustine “Gus” Faucher, Ph.D. – will share his thoughts, with us.

Finally, we’ll preview  a new initiative, to introduce girl students to science and technology – as a profession. KDKA-TV is joining forces with the Carnegie Science Center – to present a two-day event – October 3rd – 4th — called “Girls Rock Science”! We’ll ask Williams Company’s (an energy pipeline firm) Vice-President and General Manager for Pennsylvania and New York – Ryan Savage – and Candyce Fly Lee, P.E.,PME – Director of Pipeline Products, for Williams – about this event at the Science Center, and how students can meet women who are working in this growing and exciting field.
