ALBANY - The Business Council of New York State, Inc. is pleased to announce that long-time political commentators, Paul Vandenburgh and Fred Dicker, will take their popular TALK 1300 AM radio programs on the road and broadcast live from The Business Council's 2012 Annual Meeting being held at The Sagamore Resort in Bolton Landing this September.

The Paul Vandenburgh Show will broadcast live from 6 a.m. until 10 a.m. on Thursday, September 20 and Friday, September 21 and Fred Dicker Live from the State Capitol show will air from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Thursday.
