This Morning — America’s First News with Gordon Deal
- It’s the type of holiday shopping season where retailers aren’t just competing for your dollars, they’re competing with a potential recession. Hear how they’re doing it…
- Pres. Biden vs. Pres. Trump…why no one on either side wants either to run for, or much less be president again…
- And what to expect from airlines this year (think, cancellations, delays, and higher prices)…
7:10am and 7:40am: Joey Lye of Lewisburg visits our studios. The inspirational public speaker and coach will talk about her Olympic medal winning workouts, her mindset of success, how she’s going around the world with a message of perseverance and resilience, and how you can use some of her pandemic coping strategies in our every day lives and workplace. https://www.joey-lye.com/
On The Mark with co-host Joe McGranaghan:
8:30am to 8:50am: John Gordner, State Senator (R-27th, Berwick), soon to be former PA Senate Majority Whip, future Counsel for Kim Ward (PA Senate President), on the momentous wrap up of his 30-year legislative career, the new work ahead (with impeachments, PA Constitutional amendments on the ballot and likely a split legislature). We’ll talk about his great accomplishments (think, super serving PA and The Valley) and his view on missed opportunities and tough governors.
8:30am to 10:00am: Open phones. Joe and Mark will continue do the same thing they’ve been doing for 15 years.
