GovCon Wire Editor Ross Wilkers Discusses Defense 1Q Earnings Season on ‘National Defense Week’ Radio Program

MicrophoneTYSONS CORNER, VA May 3, 2016 — Ross Wilkers, lead journalist for GovCon Wire and online editor for Executive Mosaic media properties,  was interviewed for a radio segment scheduled to air Sunday morning on first quarter earnings reports from U.S. defense contractors and Wall Street’s current perceptions of the sector.

Washington-based WMAL in March launched “National Defense Week, ” a 60-minute weekly program anchored by Francis Rose that contains discussions with well-known officials, analysts and other key observers on issues related to defense, national security and veterans issues.

Rose and Wilkers also highlighted Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) as one investors have highlighted as a defense stock to watch as the company’s landmark contract for the Air Force’s B-21 bomber advances in the coming years.

Other major topics included how Wall Street sometimes views defense product makers differently than services providers, plus the joint statement from the Federal Trade Commission and Justice Department in mid-April on the prospects of consolidation among defense primes.

Ross Wilkers covers earnings statements, major contract awards and other financial stories for GovCon Wire plus its online companion GovCon Index, an Executive Mosaic-owned website that tracks the stock movements of 30 large government contractors.

National Defense Week airs every Sunday morning at 11 a.m. on WMAL radio 630 AM and 105.9 FM in the Washington region and worldwide via an online stream.

The program is also available in podcast form on iTunes and Stitcher radio.
