Welcome to a brand new month, we're grateful you are here and listening. We start off with what was a head-snaping day on Wall Street. The reason? The Central Bank raised the prime lending rate by a quarter point...which was much lower than the jumbo rate increases seen last year. The result is that Wall Street made a dramatic U-Turn. We'll talk about that and more. Plus click ahead for the interview with Terri Stevens who is thriving in a male dominated industry...but, it was not always like that. Also, remember that you can hook up with us all day on Twitter @IOB_NewsHour and on Instagram. Here's what we've got for you today:
- Wall Street cheers the recent Fed decision;
- Surprise! The number of open jobs are way up;
- Is Ticketmaster up to the latest announced tour?
- Google and Apple and the White House...it's an issue;
- Chick-fil-a drive thru lanes a public hazard?
- The Wall Street Report;
- And, Netflix has some news about password sharing.
Those stories and a conversation with Terri Stevens who, since seventeen, has been known as Greasy Girl in a male dominated enterprise. Now, years later she is the owner of The Tractor Barn of Missouri...how have things changed? We met up in Nashville during the Annual Conference & Trade Show of the National Tractor Parts Dealer Association. To listen, click our player.
