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.

Hearings to commence to find out what happened in t he Libya terror attack, more than two months after it happened. Both the House and Senate intelligence committees Thursday are set for testimonies from officials that include Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and acting CIA Director Michael Morell. Those hearings are to be private, along with testimony from former CIA Director, General Petraeus. He has agreed to speak in back-to-back appearances, scheduled for today. Hearings that are public will be mostly from analysts not involved in the Benghazi attack response. Such issues lawmakers wish to determine include why requests for more security were apparently denied and whether the military did enough to respond to the scene during the attack. Another controversial subject is why the Obama administration initially labeled the attack as a “spontaneous” act. How could findings impact Obama administration officials and lawmakers behind th is effort? What can be learned from these hearings to prevent this type of incident in the future? Internationally recognized security, terrorism and intelligence expert, he has briefed government officials that include th ose of Congress and the Pentagon staff, and author of Sociocultural Intelligence: The New Discipline Of Intelligence Studies Kerry Patton joins Tony.
