‘CBS Sunday Morning’ Preps Story on Robinson-Shuba Statue.

“CBS Sunday Morning” visited Youngstown Monday to collect interviews and footage to support its upcoming story about the Robinson-Shuba Commemorative Statue.

The CBS crew interviewed Mike Shuba, George’s son, and McDonald’s Restaurants operator Herb Washington, co-chair of the project committee (pictured above).

Steelite International America graciously donated use of its Commerce Building space for the day, and project volunteer Ray Klempay coordinated day-of details. The crew shot additional footage of Mike and Herb on Tuesday.

The “CBS Sunday Morning” segment is slated to run in the coming weeks.
