(wvia) - Jeff Hager from Hager Furniture in Palmerton and Thomas R White from Gilsonite in Scranton are WVIA President, Bill Kelly's guests on the next all-new Northeast Pennsylvania Business Journal, Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. on WVIA TV with encores airing Thursday, Oct. 18 at 10 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 14 at 4 p.m. on WVIA TV.

Not all of our interviews are about big business because the lessons of entrepreneurship sometime shave nothing to do with size. Risk taking, reward and failure are common to all. Meet Jeff Hager of Hager Furniture in Palmerton. Jeff now runs the third generation small furniture business and it wasn't easy!

Thomas White is the President of United Gilsonite Laboratories in Scranton. This once modest family business founded in 1932 grew highly successful nationally by a willingness to invent, invest and change.

Five years and 130 interviews have made WVIA's Northeast Pennsylvania Business Journal among our most watched programs in history. There are remarkable business men and women here in Northeast and North Central Pennsylvania. Stories of hard work, sacrifice and success, told by people and families who started or built successful companies that improve our communities, employ our neighbors and are living examples for future generations.

The Northeast Pennsylvania Business Journal series is produced in association with The Citizens' Voice, the Northeast Pennsylvania Business Journal, Lamar Advertising and is presented by Via Studios Global.

The Northeast Pennsylvania Business Journal also airs as a 30 minute radio program Sundays at 4:30 p.m. on WVIA FM and in Williamsport on WVYA FM. For a complete listing and air-date schedule, visit wvia.org.
