WESTBROOK, Maine (8/17/10)--The Maine Credit Union League's and Maine’s credit unions' initiatives regarding financial education were recently the focus of a weekly, half-hour public affairs program that is one of the most popular shows of its kind on Maine radio, the league said. The show, MainePoints, airs on Saturdays and Sundays on the following stations in the Portland market: 560 WGAN, Coast 93.1, 970 WZAN, Big Hits Y-100.9, 98.9 WCLZ, and AM 1400/1490, according to the Maine league’s Weekly Update newsletter (July 30). The league’s Governmental and Public Affairs Manager Jon Paradise was the show's guest and spoke at length about the “leading and visionary role that Maine's credit unions have taken in moving financial education, specifically geared to youth, forward in Maine.” The show's host, Ken Altshuler of the top-rated WGAN Morning News Show with Ken & Mike, praised Maine credit unions for “looking for ways to bring an important topic into schools and making a difference. I am impressed with how proactive credit unions have been and continue to be in youth financial education.”
