I am very excited to talk about a new project we’re working on with WCVB (Channel 5) and its website. Every month, I’m going to sit down with Channel 5’s consumer reporter Susan Wornick to discuss four issues that are important to consumers. Those interviews will then be posted at TheBostonChannel for viewing.

In the first four installments, Susan and I talk about the details of the new federal credit card regulations that were signed into law by President Obama last month, the rights of renters who may be facing eviction after their building owner has been foreclosed, options for homeowners considering a loan modification, and the dangerous of the many phishing scams that are online.

This partnership with WCVB gives us another outlet to talk about issues facing consumers, and help provide some possible solutions. I’m looking forward to this project, and please let us know what you would like to hear us discuss in future installments.
