Rendell, Bartiromo Headline WPHT Event
May 27, 2009 at 2:03 PM (PT)
An accidental on-air overlap of guest appearances on CBS RADIO Talk WPHT-A (THE BIG TALKER)/PHILADELPHIA has led to a special edition of DOM GIORDANO's evening show with PENNSYLVANIA Governor ED RENDELL and CNBC anchor MARIA BARTIROMO, live from the first floor auditorium at the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER and DAILY NEWS building on THURSDAY (5/28). The featured guests, plus Mayor MICHAEL NUTTER, Rep. CHAKA FATTAH (D-PA), District Attorney LYNNE ABRAHAM, and many others, will be discussing the results of the federal economic stimulus money on the DELAWARE VALLEY before an audience of 200 registered listeners and on the air live.
The genesis of the appearance came when BARTIROMO guested on GIORDANO's show and RENDELL called in earlier than scheduled; the guests hit it off and the station decided to bring them together for the live event, co-sponsored by the DAILY NEWS.
