NewsWorks Tonight April 10, 2015 – Full Show


    Philadelphia Daily News Sports Editor Rich Hofmann gives a remembrance for Stan Hochman who reported on pro sports in Philadelphia for more than half a century. Hochman died yesterday at the age of 86 after a brief illness. Students at Swarthmore University have been staging a sit-in for more than three weeks pushing their school to divest from fossil fuels.  Carolyn Beeler and Newsworks Tonight’s Brad Linder discuss the situation.  Newsworks Tonight Host Dave Heller and Frank Newport, Editor-in-Chief at the Gallup Poll, measure the public’s response to President Obama’s latest call for major reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.  Peter Crimmins brings us behind the scenes of the Delaware Theatre Company’s new production of “Because of Winn-Dixie”.
