Need a little Sunday morning pick-me-up? First Bank Financial Centre’s (FBFC) Jeff McCarthy and Becky Miller now host a weekly radio show on WISN-AM 1130 called That’s So Money. This weekly shot of edu-tainment airs from 11 a.m.-noon every Sunday and features banking tips, tricks, FYIs, FAQs, fun facts, and interesting stats in addition to interviews with local business partners and non-profit organizations.
Both in the marketing department, McCarthy and Miller are self-described non-bankers and choose to cover banking topics in a non-judgmental, easy-breezy sort of way, combining fun and education.
If you miss the radio show, don’t worry! All episodes are available on the iHeart Radio app as a Podcast! Simply download the app on your mobile device or visit their website to listen today.
Although the US is the world’s largest economy, the Standard & Poor’s Global Financial Literacy Survey ranks us #14 when measuring the proportion of adults in the country who are financially literate. Furthermore, a 2015 Bank of America/USA Today study found that 41% of millennials are “chronically stressed” about money, while 65% report that anxiety about money affects their emotional well-being.
Because of research like this, FBFC makes it a priority to provide financial education opportunities to the communities it serves. This radio show is one more way they accomplish this.
