H&FF Radio Signs off the Air, Final Show Sunday
MADISON, Wis., and WASHINGTON, D.C. (12/27/13)--The Credit Union National Association's popular Home & Family Finance Radio show, which provided personal finance information to consumers around the world, will make its final broadcast Sunday.
 
H&FF Radio has been on the air for more than seven years. It was established under CUNA's former president/CEO Dan Mica, as a regular weekly consumer finance show to help educate people of all ages, levels of income and from all walks of life, said CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney. "This show responded to a growing need for guidance on a variety of topics," Cheney added.
 
Topics included:
  • Mortgages;
  • Savings options;
  • Retirement plans;
  • Car buying and financing;
  • Student loans;
  • Teens and money;
  • Identity theft; and
  • Debt management.
The one-hour program aired Sunday afternoons on Radio America Network and was carried on American Forces Radio Network. Paul Berry, journalist and broadcaster from Washington, D.C., has hosted the program throughout its seven years. Among those who sponsored the show were the CO-OP Network and the Defense Credit Union Council, and in past years, Cabot Creamery Cooperative. H&FF Radio was brought to consumers by America's credit unions and their 97 million members and was presented by CO-OP Network.
 
"H&FF Radio shared its name and mission with CUNA's longstanding personal finance information source, Home & Family Finance Resource Center," said Susan Tiffany, director of consumer periodicals at CUNA. She noted the radio show "is the latest manifestation of CUNA's and credit unions' longstanding commitment to member education, dating formally from the 1961 launch of Everybody's Money quarterly magazine."
 
CUNA and Radio America podcast the show through iTunes, Podcast Alley, Odeo and other popular podcast library sites, as well as on Radio America and CUNA's websites.
