BizKid cited on NBCs Today Show
NEW YORK (3/6/09)--NBC's "Today Show" mentioned the credit union-sponsored PBS show, BizKid$, citing it as part of a national push to make the younger generation more money savvy. The mention is about two minutes into the "mini-mogul" segment aired Wednesday morning. The clip is the result of a tour of New York by Biz Kid$ Executive Producer Jamie Hammond, who is presenting the BizKid$ curriculum as a resource for educators at a conference this week in New York City. Roughly 6,500 to 7,000 education leaders from the U.S. and Canada are participating in the program. Across the nation, as part of the national underwriting investment by America's Credit Unions, 16 major media markets are active in Biz Kid$ curriculum outreach projects. The new Biz Kid$ outreach facilitator, Outreach Extensions, is partnering with public television stations, local schools and credit union representatives to talk about how the program can be incorporated into classrooms.
