SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr unveiled a plan on Thursday that would dramatically change the pensions for city retirees.

He is starting with an investigation to root out corruption and mismanagement and talking about cutting benefits to all Detroit retirees.

Joining Huel Perkins and Charlie Langton to discuss were Mark Diaz, president of the Detroit Police Officers Association, political consultant Greg Bowens and Fox 2 reporter Alexis Wiley.

Plus, Charlie Langton took "Let It Rip" on the road where he asked people whether the feds should be spending money trying to find Jimmy Hoffa.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
