Consumer
Car care and interchange topics on HandFF Radio
WASHINGTON (6/1/12)--This past Sunday's Home & Family Finance Radio program covered auto breakdowns, dealer service plans, and interchange fees.

The show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, featured Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:

  • "Auto Breakdowns." Michelle Dosher, managing editor, Credit Union National Association (CUNA), Madison, Wis., offers seven tips to help drivers avoid serious car trouble.
  • "Dealer Service Plans." Pam Oakes, car-care expert, Detroit, explains why you don't need to purchase that expensive service plan from the dealership.
  • "Interchange Fees." Bill Hardekopf, CEO, LowCards.com, Birmingham, Ala., discusses interchange fees and what they mean for consumers.
Home & Family Finance is a resource center for personal finance information at CUNA. The radio show is sponsored by CO-OP Network, the national credit union ATM network; Cabot Creamery Cooperative, maker of award-winning cheddar; and the Defense Credit Union Council and member credit unions, serving those who serve the country worldwide.

Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. ET on the Radio America Network. The show also is carried on American Forces Radio Network. The one-hour program devoted to consumer finance issues is brought to you by America's credit unions and their 90 million members, and is presented by CO-OP Network.

CUNA and Radio America are podcasting Home & Family Finance through iTunes, Podcast Alley, Odeo, and other popular podcast library sites, as well as on Radio America and CUNA's websites.
