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.

He didn't offer details, but the director of the National Security Agency is telling lawmakers his agency's once-secret surveillance programs have helped disrupt dozens of terrorist attacks. At a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing Wednesday, Army Gen. Keith Alexander vigorously defended the programs as an effective tool in keeping America safe. But he also said the public needs to know more about how the programs operate. Alexander said he wants the American people to know that the government is "trying to be transparent" and protecting civil liberties as well as the nation's security. With Tony is CBS News Military Analyst Mike Lyons
A whopping 95% of people are flirting with the flu by not washing their hands properly in public washrooms, a new study reveals. And 15 per cent of men, twice as many as women, left without going anywhere near the sink, lead researcher Dr. Carl Borchgrevink told the Star. "It's just amazing that 15 percent of men would leave a restroom without doing anything," he said. "We're stubborn people. Men don't like to be told what to do." The study checked out 3,749 people over a year's time at four public washrooms in East Lansing, Mich., where Borchgrevink teaches at Michigan State University. Two were off campus; two were on campus. Everyone was ranked by whether they left with no action, rinsed their hands briefly with water and no soap, washed with soap and water briefly, left with wet or dried hands, or washed their hands the full recommended time. Best ways to wash hands, why are people not doing it? Tony talks with Medical Expert Dr. Mark Anderson.
