WASHINGTON (11/23/10)--Nearly 20 media outlets, ranging from global to local, covered the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) and Consumer Federation of America’s (CFA) 11th annual projection of consumers' holiday spending plans. The results of the spending survey, which were gathered between Nov. 11 and 14, were released during a Monday event at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C. CUNA and CFA also pair the results with advice to help consumers keep holiday debt under control. "This press event is another way to keep credit unions and CUNA visible in the national media and reinforce that credit unions are a trusted resource for consumers," said Mark Wolff, CUNA senior vice president of communications. The survey of more than 1,000 adult Americans indicated that overall holiday spending could increase, as 23% of respondents said that their financial condition had improved over the past year. A total of 19% reported improving financial prospects in last year’s survey. Among the television, cable and radio networks, and newspaper groups that attended or covered the press conference:
* NBC News * CNN * CBS News * Bloomberg * FOX News * ABC Radio News * Hearst TV * Dow Jones * The Associated Press
Reporters from the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, National Public Radio, KNX radio in Los Angeles, a D.C.-area NBC affiliate, Cox TV and The Huffington Post also reached out to CUNA for further information after the event.
