WASHINGTON -- Military personnel around the world will now be able to listen on CUNA's weekly personal finance radio show, Home & Family Finance, through a partnership with the American Forces Network.
AFN falls under the American Forces Radio and Television Service, a part of the U.S. Department of Defense that provides stateside radio and TV programming to U.S. service men and women, DoD civilians, and their families serving outside the continental United States, including bases in Europe, the Middle East, and the Pacific.
Home & Family Finance airs twice on Saturdays at 7 a.m. Pacific time and again at 4 p.m. Pacific and is available to AFN affiliates around the world.
"Given the high priority CUNA and America's credit unions place on financial education, we are extremely proud the show is going out to so many of our military personnel overseas through the American Forces Network," said Dan Mica, president/CEO of CUNA.
CUNA launched the Home & Family Finance radio program in September 2006.
The program is hosted by Paul Berry, a broadcast journalist with more than 30 years of experience. The expansion of the program onto the AFN brings Berry full circle; he first received broadcast training with the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service while stationed in Vietnam.
Home & Family Finance radio is produced by CUNA with the support of presenting sponsor CO-OP Financial Services and national sponsors VISA, Wescorp, and Cabot Creamery Cooperative.
