The Secret Service is getting a lot of flak these days for a series of recent security lapses.  On this edition of Up to Date, Steve Kraske talks with a former White House advance man who has worked on thousands of advance trips in the U.S. and around the world for Presidents, Vice-Presidents, and First Ladies. They discuss working with the Secret Service and how presidential visits are planned.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
