CNN show to air live from retirement community

TOWSON - A segment of the CNN show American Morning with Paula Zahn will be broadcast live this morning from Pickersgill Retirement Community.

The segment, to air about 8:20 a.m., will feature an interview with singer/celebrity Donna Greenwald after she performs the national anthem for Pickersgill's Independence Day Bicentennial Breakfast. Greenwald, a resident of Columbia, is known for singing the anthem at every major league baseball park over a seven-year span.

The retirement community said the singer invited CNN to broadcast from Pickersgill after learning about its historical ties to Mary Pickersgill, the Baltimore woman who sewed the flag flying over Fort McHenry in 1814 that inspired "The Star-Spangled Banner." Information: 410-842-0421.
