Labor Day Specials!

After 11AM News

With ABC's Cheri Preston - Hard to believe, but the new school year is just around the corner for those of you not attending year-round school.  We want to help you get the prep out of the way so you can enjoy the last of your summer weekends.  We’ll tell you how
to buy school supplies and new clothes without going over budget.  Do you have concerns about keeping your kids healthy in the classroom and safe online?  We'll put your mind at ease with some helpful tips.  Plus, we have some guidelines that will put you on track to prepping your kids to get into a good college.  In ABC’s Back to School Survival Guide 2014, you’ll hear from students of all levels and what’s on their minds as they get ready to head into a new year.  ABC’s Back to School Survival Guide 2014, anchored by ABC News Radio correspondent Cheri Preston, has everything you need to do just that – SURVIVE the back-to-school season. 

After 1PM News!

With ABC's Scott Goldberg - Robotics.  Wearable devices.  Driverless cars.  If you thought these inventions were light-years away, think again.  The technology of the future is coming your way right now.  But with the world changing so fast, how do you distinguish between a must-have purchase and a temporary fad?  Whether it’s tracking your health, upgrading your home,
or buying that smart TV, our experts will walk you through the latest innovations.  Don’t learn about internet safety from your kids – teach them some tech tips of your own.  We’re even walking down the fashion runway, where digital designs are shaping the trends of tomorrow.  Get ready to re-boot your expectations with “Tomorrow’s Technology Today,” hosted by ABC News Radio correspondent Scott Goldberg.

After 5PM News!

With ABC's Aaron Katersky & David Muir - Labor Day gives us the opportunity to salute the contributions American workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.  ABC News anchor David Muir championed the  Made In America series – looking at some of  the products manufactured  here
in the 50 states and how they're creating and sustaining jobs that help keep America strong. Hear how we are exporting goods over our borders and into outer space. Are our troops' shoes manufactured in America? We have the answer. And did you know that the RV is making a comeback? That's good news for one Iowa company. This Labor Day, learn the stories behind the companies that are surviving and thriving right here in the USA in ABC's Made In America, hosted by ABC News Radio correspondent Aaron Katersky and his colleague, ABC News anchor David Muir.
