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.
A county prosecutor in Cleveland says he may seek the death penalty against Ariel Castro, the suspect in the rape and kidnapping of three women who were held in captivity for a decade.

One of the victims, Michelle Knight, told police she suffered at least five miscarriages intentionally caused by Castro, who she says starved her and beat her in the abdomen. With Tony this morning is CBS' Greg Saber.

Student lectures teacher on....how to teach? Video went viral in one day prompting a response from the school.

We want our students and teachers to be engaged, but the method by which the student expressed his concern could have been handled in a more appropriate way. We are and will continue to be open to listening to students.”

Sens. Rand Paul and Marco Rubio are facing a big obstacle if they seek the White House in 2016 — and it"s not each other.
