Preview the first episode of NewsWorks Tonight

    In just more than an hour, you can listen live to broadcast debut of NewsWorks Tonight, our 30-minute fast-paced radio program where we go inside today’s headlines and talk with the people behind the stories.

    We’re starting with some great stuff.

     

    We’ll hear from Susan Phillips about the federal budgets from the perspective of the Obama administration and U.S. Sen Pat Toomey, who’s called for reforms to the president’s budget proposal.

    What happens when a man legally carrying a gun is stopped by police officers on the streets? Well, he recorded the encounter, so we’ll hear from Mark Fiorino about his experience, as told to our Lizz Fiedler.

    Just how much change is coming to Philadelphia with the 2011 election? We’ll have to see about that after the primary and the general election, but Dave Davies will talk host Dave Heller about why there might be less change afoot than we’d like.

    What’s next for the Philadelphia Orchestra, and how did it end up filing for bankruptcy anyway? Peter Crimmins will shed a little light on the situation.

    We’ve got 30 minutes and lots of stories, so tune in live on the web or at 90.9 FM to listen in at 6 p.m.
