October 6, 2017: TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

October 07, 2017 at 5:30 am

The push to build another railroad tunnel linking New York and New Jersey may hinge on support from the White House.  Will the President get on board? Or will the gateway tunnel get stuck at the station?  We talk to Philip K. Howard, the chair of Common Good for the answers. A legend comes home.  Tony Bennett is back in the Big Apple to take Radio City by storm.  Ahead of the show, the music icon joins us for a conversation you don’t want to miss. An anniversary for the ages.  As Monty Python celebrates 48-years since the series premiered on the BBC, Python co-founder John Cleese keeps us laughing in this “MetroFocus” exclusive with a look back at television history.
