Consumer
HandFF Radio Experts key in on consumer debt
WASHINGTON (2/15/08)--Experts on this Sunday’s H&FF Radio show focus on one important topic: consumer debt--how we got there, how we can get out, debt collection rights and responsibilities, and where to go for help. Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. EST on the Radio America 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. The Credit Union National Association (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. Sunday’s show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, features Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:
* “Consumer Debt and Saving,” with Steve Brobeck, executive director, Consumer Federation of America, Washington, D.C.; * “Financial Consumer Hotlines,” with Gigi Hyland, board member, National Credit Union Administration, Alexandria, Va.; * “Debt Collection: Your Rights and Responsibilities,” with Ruth Susswein, deputy director of national priorities, Consumer Action, Washington, D.C.; and * Listener Q&A: How to handle errors in your credit report; teach your preschooler about money; develop a spending plan; what to do before you need auto repair.
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, makers of cheddar cheese; Visa; and WesCorp.
