The weekend is upon us. Today the newscast comes from a very cold Mason City, Iowa where the wind is howling and it's three degrees. Today, along with the business news headlines you'll hear from Jeff Pitts in his last broadcast for us. He's been a rock for nearly six years and we appreciated his loyalty. But he's moving on from his gig with Cityview. You might say this is another example of the Great Resignation and we wish him well. In the news:
- A mixed bag on Wall Street but...Oil?
- The Jobs Report was amazing, no...really;
- One company expects consumers to back off spending;
- Some big news out of Lowes today;
- Are the days of Mega-Malls over;
- Could a union be coming to a Google player;
- Speaking of unions a do-over vote in Alabama;
- The Wall Street Report;
- And, are PIP's bad? No not Gladys Knight.
For nearly six years Jeff Pitts the Managing Editor for Cityview Magazine has been chatting up "Stuff to DO" in the Greater Des Moines Metro every Friday. Every Friday without fail. That is a bunch of time being together and what started out as "fun" has blossomed into a friendship. This is his final broadcast for Cityview. Jeff has decided to go do "something else". Not exactly sure what that might be but he too is now part of the "Great Resignation" that is going on all across the country. The good news is that we'll still visit from time to time. Thank you Jeff for being such a loyal sidekick for so very long. Now, on to the FUN Stuff this weekend into next week:
Thanks for listening!
