"What's Next for Delaware"

Are you wondering what’s in store for Delaware after DuPont merges with Dow?

WDEL will host a live town hall broadcast - “What’s Next for Delaware? How will the Dow-DuPont merger impact The First State?”

The broadcast will air from 7 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 21, from the Doberstein Admissions Center Auditorium of Wilmington University’s New Castle campus.

Hosted by WDEL’s Peter MacArthur, a panel discussion including Delaware Economic Development Office Secretary Bernice Whaley, Delaware Dept. of Labor Director of Employment and Training Stacey Laing, Delaware State Chamber of Commerce President Rich Heffron and Frank Ingraham, formerly of DuPont Human Resources Department, will explore and discover what may lie ahead for Delaware and the potentially thousands of displaced workers.

Delaware Gov. Jack Markell will provide opening remarks.

You’re invited to listen on 1150AM/101.7FM WDEL, or join us at Wilmington University.
