CAMBRIDGE CREDIT COUNSELING EXPANDS ITS MONEY AMERICA RADIO PROGRAM TO MEET COMMUNITY NEEDS
Weekly WAIC 91.9 FM radio program goes to an hour-long format to provide additional financial information to the local community.
Agawam, MA - Friday, February 05, 2010 – In April 2009, Cambridge Credit Counseling launched the Money America program which airs 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on American International College’s radio station, WAIC 91.9 FM. The show helps residents of Western Massachusetts, and beyond, by providing discussions of the oftentimes complex financial matters that impact their lives. Based on the success of the program, Cambridge and AIC have agreed to expand the half-hour show to a full hour format beginning February 7, 2009.
“We are thrilled the program has been so well received by the community,” remarked Christopher Viale, Cambridge’s president and CEO. “We know that more than 30,000 listeners are tuning in each week, and, based on their feedback, we’ve gotten a sense of the demand that exists for basic financial information. Our staff is looking forward to the additional opportunities that a longer format will make possible.”
Expanding the program to an hour will also allow the show’s hosts to interview other financial professionals and community leaders who are making an impact in the Pioneer Valley. The first scheduled guest is Jennifer A. Connolly, President of Junior Achievement of Western Massachusetts. Ms. Connolly will discuss how JA has evolved since its founding in the Pioneer Valley, and how their economic curriculum is changing the lives of local young people. Future guests will include representatives of mortgage and lending institutions, a representative from the State Treasurer’s Office, local student loan counselors and authors. Those who would like to appear as a guest on Money America should contact Thomas Fox, at (413) 241-2362, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
