Former Governor Ed Rendell will sit down with the Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) to discuss his newly-released book, “A Nation of Wusses” during a special edition of “PA Books.” The program featuring the former governor is slated to air statewide on Tuesday, June 12 beginning at 8:00 p.m. Following the conclusion of this program, viewers will be given the chance to share their comments and questions with the former governor and author during a special LIVE PCN Call-In program at 9:00 p.m.
“A Nation of Wusses” is now a new memoir penned by Rendell, but the phrase itself made national news after Rendell coined it when expressing his feelings after the NFL postponement of an Eagles game based on the threat of a snowstorm. Today Rendell uses “a nation of wusses” to describe how the nation’s leaders have lost their guts and the ability to face serious issues head-on. The former governor will share his thoughts during a candid one-on-one interview about his new book on this special “PA Books” episode.
The hour-long LIVE PCN Call-In program which will follow the “PA Books” special will give viewers an opportunity to talk directly to Rendell.
“PA Books” airs Sundays at 9:00 p.m. with weekday airings at 8:00 a.m. The interactive, LIVE PCN Call-In program is seen Monday through Thursday at 7:00 p.m.
