The CU difference on HandFF Radio
WASHINGTON (11/5/12)--This past Sunday on H&FF Radio, listeners heard why credit unions top banks in affordability, service, and more; how to switch to a credit union; and how to save on holiday travel. This was a rebroadcast of an earlier H&FF Radio program.

The show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, featured Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:

  • "Credit Unions: More Than Lower Fees." Harriet May, past Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Board chair and retired CEO of GECU in El Paso, Texas, covered the differences between banks and not-for-profit, people-first credit unions.
  • "Breaking Up Is Not So Hard to Do." Susan Tiffany, certified credit union financial counselor and director of consumer periodicals, Credit Union National Association (CUNA), Madison, Wis., talked about how to switch to a credit union in a few easy steps.
  • "Hot Travel and Vacation Ideas." Bob Diener, travel veteran and founder of getaroom.com, Dallas, shared tips for saving on holiday travel.
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; and the Defense Credit Union Council and member credit unions, serving those who serve the country worldwide.

Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. ET 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.

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.
