The three-minute segment of WCMH TV4, Columbus Ohio, noted some credit unions in the state are expanding. It featured a brief interview with Patrick Harris, director of media relations for the Ohio Credit Union League, talking about credit unions’ not-for-profit orientation, better rates and member focus. The segment concluded with three comments sent to the station, after it asked viewers what they thought about credit unions. One Twitter user commented: “Been with my credit union for almost 10 years, would never go back to banks and their fees.’ Another user of Twitter said: “Credit unions good, banks bad, customer service, rates, customer service, executive compensation, customer service.” A Facebook user commented: “I started using a credit union about 10 years ago, when I found I could get better interest there. I also started my children [as members] there. As a result, they take pride in saving.”
