DETROIT (1/9/08)--Biz Kid$, a new TV series exclusively underwritten by America's Credit Unions to teach kids about money was mentioned Tuesday in an article by a Detroit News television writer. The new show will be seen on 279 PBS television stations in 43 states starting this month. The article said the show aims to provide money management tips to young people during a time when the importance of financial literacy is being discussed by state legislatures nationwide and the U.S. Congress. The 30-minute PBS production debuted Thursday on WTVS-TV in Detroit. The first installment features guests--including a rap producer, a skateboard designer and a philanthropist who began a fund-raiser for a hospital--giving advice on money and entrepreneurship, the article said.
