This week, Megan had an in-depth discussion with Political Reporter Tom Shortell. On Wednesday, almost all of the Republican candidates running for president held their first debate. Tom joined a Debate Watch Party with 20 conservatives from the local branch of Americans for Prosperity and got their reactions. Most of the folks watching are backing Donald Trump, who did not participate in the debate.
Reporter Brian Myszkowski talks with Megan about a historic Black cemetery recently discovered sitting beneath a pocket park in Easton. A listing of those buried there includes potential members of the Buffalo Soldiers, an all-Black cavalry and infantry units that operated from 1866 until the end of the Korean War.
