Biz Kid among the best in books TV says IUSA TODAYI
NEW YORK (1/7/09)--For the second time in just over six months, USA Today has spotlighted “Biz Kid$,” a television program underwritten by America’s Credit Unions and aimed at teaching youths about money. This time, “Biz Kid$” is named among the “best in books, TV.” The article appeared in the national newspaper’s Money section (Jan. 5), and included a photo that was the dominant element on the page. The photo is of Kailyn Cage, who runs a mini vending empire in Washington D.C. One of the 12 episodes this season focuses on the importance of good credit and features Cage, a Bowie, Md., teen who secured credit through the financing arm of the vending machines manufacturer. In June, USA Today also featured the program and a photo in its Money Section (News Now June 4).
