Discover PA Business
We’ve partnered with the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry for this new series. Each month, we’ll profile a specific business operating within the state by offering an inside look at the facility in combination with an in-depth discussion about the business and the issues facing that industry.
“Discover PA Business” airs the third Sunday of each month at 8 pm.
