Discussing source of clergy sexual abuse and counting Philadelphia’s homeless

    We’re winding down our first week of NewsWorks Tonight with some great local features for you on some top stories. We’ll start off with full coverage of new report on clergy sexual abuse.


    Hear from analysts and critics about the report from John Jay College of Criminal Justice that attributes the rise in priest sexual abuse to Woodstock-era sexual freedoms.

    Is it the end of the world as we know it? Peter Crimmins will talk about Saturday’s predicted end of the world. Are you preparing, or do you think the sun will come up Sunday?

    Philadelphia is counting its homeless. We’ll hear from Maiken Scott about how the homeless population is assessed and what services can be provided for those with the most need.

    We’ve got that and more for you tonight at 6 p.m., including some campaign spending tidbits from the 8th Councilmanic District. Also listen in for talk about what will happen when Oprah Winfrey leave her daytime TV post.

    Listen to the whole half-hour at 6 p.m. on 90.9 FM.
