HandFF Radio Is Your TV set ready for digital switch
WASHINGTON (1/18/08)--This Sunday’s H&FF Radio spot features four consumer experts, including a federal government bureau chief explaining why all TV stations in the U.S. are converting from analog to digital broadcasting, what that means for you, and how you can get $40 coupons that can be applied toward the cost of eligible converter boxes. 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. 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:
* “Give Your Wallet a Workout,” with Cate Williams, vice president of financial literacy, Money Management International, Chicago, Ill.; * “Earned Income Tax Credit,” with Jeanette Valencia, earned income tax credit program coordinator, The Legal Aid Society of Orange County, Calif.; * “U.S. Conversion to Digital T.V. & Coupon Program Rollout,” with Catherine Seidel, chief, Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau (CGB), Federal Communications Commission, Washington, D.C.; * “Unscrewed: The Consumer’s Guide to Getting What You Paid For,” with Ron Burley, broadcast reporter, author, and consumer activist, Eugene, Ore.; and * Listener E-mail Questions.
Home & Family Finance is a resource center for personal finance information at the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). The radio show is sponsored by CO-OP Network, the national credit union ATM network; Cabot Creamery Cooperative, makers of cheddar cheese; and Visa.
