 Permanent link
WASHINGTON (7/17/09)--Each guest on Sunday’s Home & Family Finance Radio show will focus on timely housing topics for older Americans: senior cooperative housing, and trends related to housing and the aging population. However, due to technical difficulties, the show will not air a segment on reverse mortgages with John Dugan, Comptroller of the Currency. Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. EDT 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. 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:
* “Housing Trends for an Aging U.S.,” with Elinor Ginzler, senior vice president for livable communities, AARP, Washington, D.C.; * “Senior Cooperative Housing,” with Amy Fredregill, vice president, Cooperative Network, St. Paul, Minn.; and * Your Questions Answered: Length of time information stays on your credit report; check cashers and payday lenders; credible source for investment information; and the benefits of using direct deposit for your pay checks.
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; Western Corporate FCU (WesCorp) and its member credit unions; and the Defense Credit Union Council and member credit unions, serving those who serve the country worldwide.
