This Morning — America’s First News with Gordon Deal

  • A new poll finds that if independent voters formed their own political party, they could rule American politics. But what would that take?
  • As consumers, we’re starting to tap the brakes when it comes to spending. For a consumer-driven economy, we’ll examine what that means…
  • And how to spot fake AirPods and other knock-offs when shopping online…

7:10am: Molly Sturniolo, Penn State Extension Master Gardener Coordinator – Centre County, Bellefonte, on the Penn State Master Gardener program, what it is and what it is not. We’ll talk about the high level of education, scrutiny, screening and certification that goes into the MG program, the projects, and what they do, and what they do to help the community.
