SACRAMENTO, Calif. – This year’s National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Emmy Award in the Children/Youth Program division goes to a hit program that focuses on financial literacy for young people -Money Moves Jr., which was sponsored in part by SAFE Credit Union. Launched last year, the show paired reporters with their own teenaged children to take an entertaining, engaging and educational look at personal finance. The pilot starts with a story by Washington D.C. reporter Andy Field and his daughter Rachael, who take a look at school programs that teach students about managing money. Another episode followed Lynne Gormley-Pang and her college-bound stepdaughter, Alexis as she opens a checking account, goes shopping for food, clothing and finds out just how quickly and easy it is to run out of money. Show topics included other everyday issues such as handling credit cards and setting a budget. Hosted by comedian Jack Gallagher, the original Money Moves was conceived in part by SAFE President Henry Wirz, who wanted to find an effective, yet entertaining way to promote financial literacy. Now in its third season the Sacramento-produced show airs on about 80 PBS stations from coast-to-coast. “We realized the show touched on a real hot topic so we wanted to provide this valuable service to teens as well,” said PBS station KVIE Money Moves and Money Moves Jr. Producer Debby Everett. If funded for a second season, Money Moves Jr. will acquaint young people with a few more financial facts of life such as buying a car and having it insured, renting an apartment and starting a savings account.
