Young adults Earn and keep your best credit grade
WASHINGTON (8/14/09)--Unlike high school or college grades, a credit score is a grade you earn and carry with you from youth to old age. Sunday’s H&FF Radio show line-up includes a tutorial for young adult students and workers about all the areas, beyond credit pricing, affected by the three-digit credit score. Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. EDT 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. The Credit Union National Association (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. 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:
* “Earn and Keep Your Best Credit ‘Grade,’” Susan Tiffany, director, personal finance information for adults, CUNA Center for Personal Finance, Madison, Wis.; * “Reduce Debt, Reduce Stress,” Gerri Detweiler, credit expert and author,, San Francisco; * “One-Income Household: Disaster Management When One Income Suddenly Disappears,” Susan Reynolds, freelance editor and author, Boston; * “Motorist Assurance Program: Needed Protection for Car Owners, and Get Your Brakes Checked Free During Brake Safety Awareness Week,” Barry Soltz, president, Motorist Assurance Program, Riverwoods, Ill.; and * “Save Money Buying Online With Special Discount Codes,” Barry Boone, CEO,, Tulsa, Okla.
