MEMBER DIARY

This week on “The Credit Report with Bill Lewis” – 5/21 – 5/26

Interesting guests and timely topics will be on AM 740 WSBR and AM 1470 WWNN the week of May 21st and The Credit Report with Bill Lewis.

After more than seven years on the South Florida airwaves, Bill Lewis – host of The Credit Report with Bill Lewis – has left his 9 o’clock morning drive time show on AM 1470 WWNN.

The Credit Report with Bill Lewis, a daily forum for business and financial news, politics, economic trends, and cutting edge issues, a daily radio talk show hosted by Bill Lewis has moved south on the dial and now airs on AM 740 WSBR weekdays at 7am.

Originally launched on AM 1400 WFTL in 2004, as the “Credit Restoration Consultants Hour,” Bill Lewis provided self-help tips and advice regarding credit repair, finances, and related topics. Throughout the years, Bill’s show strayed from the original concept of providing financial awareness to his listeners.

In an effort to strengthen his listener base and to broaden the topics hosted, Bill launched The Credit Report with Bill Lewis upon moving to AM 1470 WWNN within the Beasley Broadcasting group.

Listeners were searching for help regarding a myriad of topics from credit repair, extreme coupon shopping, and foreclosure matters, but welcomed the political format that Bill introduced locally to a south Florida audience.

Guests this week on The Credit Report with Bill Lewis:

Former House majority leader and current Congressional District 22 candidate Adam Hasner will appear and discuss his recent endorsements from Florida Senator Marco Rubio and former Governor Jeb Bush.  Hasner has succeeded where Republican presidential and senate hopefuls have failed.  No other candidate for public office has been able to obtain endorsements from Rubio and Bush, the two most influential names in Florida GOP politics. 

Foreclosure defense attorney Carlos Reyes will appear and discuss the latest developments in the mortgage foreclosure crisis. After nearly a year of negotiations, federal and state officials and five major mortgage servicers (Ally Financial, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citibank, and Wells Fargo) recently announced a $25 billion settlement over alleged foreclosure and mortgage loan-servicing abuses.

Chairman Richard DeNapoli of the Broward Republican Party will appear and discuss initiatives to expand candidate awareness through social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Former prosecutor and Fort Lauderdale criminal defense attorney Jim Lewis will appear and discuss his candidacy for Broward State Attorney as the only Republican for this countywide office in 2012. Lewis is challenging incumbent Michael Satz and Chris Mancini, a former federal prosecutor turned defense attorney.
