DENVER – (September 23, 2008; 1:30 p.m.) – Television public affairs producer Heather Domko has changed tomorrow’s Studio 12 program topic to the federal financial bailout – reflecting the hottest issue of the day for many viewers of the weekly viewer call-in program on Channel 12.
Studio 12 Host Steffan Tubbs and two local experts will examine the Wall Street bailout and its effect on the national and local economy Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. on KBDI-Channel 12.
Program panelists will include Aldo Svaldi and Wayne Herman. Svaldi has been a Denver Post business reporter since 2000, covering the economy, banking, finance and residential real estate. Wayne Herrman is a former 28-year business reporter who is a realtor and real estate instructor.
“We pride ourselves in producing programs that are newsworthy and made an eleventh hour shift to a hot topic that is a great concern for KBDI viewers,” Domko said.
The program topic of offshore drilling, originally scheduled for the weekly program, will be aired in a future edition of Studio 12.
A tape of the Studio 12 program will be available via free video-on-demand September 26 on KBDI’s website, www.kbdi.org.
