Kevin O’Neill leads off talking Trump vs. Bannon, media bias and the breaking New England Patriots’ feud. Kathy Dervin is in-studio. Chief and Kathy welcome Pedro da Costa of Business Insider to discuss inflation and the Federal Reserve one year into the Trump Presidency. Lastly, John Neal of PTI Securities & Futures’ Peoria, AZ location wonders what happened to the Middle Class in this country?
Guests & Co-Hosts
Kevin O’Neill is our Wednesday and Friday morning sports guy. His segment emphasizes what happens off the field as much as what happens on the field. All businesses have their intrigue, but the inner workings of sports organizations find their way into the public domain frequently. Unless a rant from the Chief spills into Kevin’s segment (not an unusual occurrence), he will highlight some of those sports related business issues; but be advised that those highlights usually come with an opinion.
