Mississippi College Hosts "Money Talks'' Radio Show on March 24
March 9, 2009
Hosted by the MC School of Business, the panel discussion is set for 6 p.m. Tuesday March 24 in Self Hall, home of the business school along College Street. The event in the building's auditorium is open to the public.
"Money Talks" is Mississippi Public Broadcasting's popular program that allows listeners statewide to phone business experts and quickly get answers. The one-hour show usually airs live on Tuesday mornings from MPB studios in Jackson. It will be taped at MC and broadcast April 7 ay 9 a.m. on MPB Think Radio (91.3 FM).
For more than a year, business professor and small-business owner Nancy Lottridge Anderson has served on the show's panel with Chris Burford, a certified credit and housing counselor. Kevin Farrell is the program's host. They will join the radio conversations at MC on March 24. Anderson is president of the investment management firm New Perspectives.
"Money Talks" will expand its list of experts with its biggest panel ever at Mississippi College. MC business professors Mark McComb and Gerald Lee will join the panel at Self Hall.
Also adding to the discussions will be: Doug P. Muenzenmay, senior vice president at Morgan Asset Management, an M.B.A. graduate at MC and adjunct business professor at the Christian university.
MC School of Business Dean Marcelo Eduardo is pleased to welcome the very informative program to the Clinton campus. He's hoping MC will host the program on an annual basis.
The radio show has proven to be vital to listeners at a time when Mississippi's jobless rate climbs to 9.2 percent, the fourth worst in the nation. Starting in early September, the country's financial meltdown and problems around the globe are triggering layoffs for millions of workers.
"In these very difficult economic times, the general public needs to have a better understanding of the problems and solutions," Eduardo said. "The business faculty at MC has significant knowledge and understanding" and will make a valuable contribution, he said.
Topics on the radio show should run the gamut from the federal government's $780 billion economic stimulus package recently signed by President Obama to personal finance.
Mississippi Public Broadcasting is an award-winning network affiliated with the Public Broadcasting System. Since 1970, MPB has won more than 350 national and regional awards, including Emmys and Parents' Choice Awards, for its productions.
