TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

May 19, 2018 at 5:30 am

Are you safe in your hired car? After reports of sexual assaults in Uber and Lyft cars, New York State Senator Luis Sepulveda went on a crusade to bring an end to that threat to the public and the victims. His victory against both companies and what’s next are ahead. Paid family leave for teachers and all city workers. The policy, hurting the very back bone of our most needed public servants. Meet some of the people struggling with the policy and find out why the city stands by it. As the world prepares to celebrate the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, one person’s spirit and memory will loom large over the mega event: Harry’s mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. We’re bringing the royal wedding home to New York City and tonight we look at the mother of the groom and her love affair with the island of Manhattan. We take a look back at the Vietnam War, Agent Orange, and its impact 50 years after the Tet Offensive.

Aired on May 18, 2018.
