Mortgage madness and social media on HandFF Radio
WASHINGTON (8/3/12)--Sunday's Home & Family Finance Radio program covered seniors' foreclosure woes, offered hope for underwater homeowners, and talked tweets, check-ins and blogs--that's social media, folks--for college students.

The 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:

  • "Nightmare on Main Street." Susan Reinhard, senior vice president, AARP, Washington D.C., reviews a sobering study about senior home foreclosures.
  • "Hope for Seniors." All is not lost for seniors suffering from problem mortgages--Stuart Vener, a national real estate and mortgage expert with Wilshire Holding Group, Odessa, Fla., shares solutions.
  • "College and Social Media." Steve Nicholls, author of "Social Media in Business," London, reveals what precollege adolescents should know about social media.
