Welcome to the "Producer's Corner" where you'll find news and notes from Morning Show Producer Scott Fitzgerald.
It’s a new year and a popular resolution for many is to improve their financial situation. “Now is a great time to take stock of your financial well-being” says Navy Federal Credit Union President and CEO Cutler Dawson. For three years now I’ve been endorsing Navy Federal Credit Union. I put my name behind Navy Federal because I’ve been a member for 15 years.
For nearly 80 years Navy Federal has been serving the military with programs and services tailored to the military lifestyle and not offered to those outside the armed forces. Some of those services include (but aren’t limited to) outstanding free checking accounts and interest rates on auto loans and mortgages. Last year we were a pre-approved for a 2.99% auto loan for our new SUV.
2013 is a good time to map out a smart money strategy that doesn’t involve unnecessary fees and expenses other banks charge their members. For example Navy Federal’s active duty checking account is free and members can earn dividends as well as receive up to $20 in free ATM rebates each month. I don’t know about you, but if I found a $20 bill on the ground at the end of each month, I sure wouldn’t pass it up.
If you (or a family member) is currently serving in the military (even you DoD Contractors) I encourage you to visit navyfederal.org and see for yourself.
Navy Federal is financially solid and federally insured by the NCUA.
- Automakers release their October sales figures today. The big worry about October car sales is the impact of the storm. It forced some east coast dealers to close. The auto companies hope that sales they lost in October can be made up this month. Pent-up demand, easier credit and new models have pushed sales for the year beyond what many analysts expected.

- Republican senators are accusing President Obama of ignoring requests for information about the Libya terror attack on the American consulate on September 11th. Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, John McCain of Arizona, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin wrote a letter that readdressed their questions that included when officials first determined it was a terrorist attack. They then wrote that questions not being answered “will only add to the growing perception among many of our constituents that your administration has undertak en a concerted effort to misrepresent the facts and stonewall Congress and the American people.” A Fox News report brought up claims that officers at a nearby CIA annex in the area were told to stand down multiple times when they requested to help those at the consulate. Those claims have been rejected by the CIA and the Defense Department. President Obama did not answer the question directly when asked twice during an interview last week on whether a request for military assistance was denied. Are there deliberate attempts to not answer inquiries into the Libya terror attack? What ramifications could the Senators raising the question of “stonewalling” have?
