This Year Take Control of Your Finances



    TORONTO, Jan. 15 /CNW/ - Worried about the current economic crisis and
how it may affect you and your family? Want to learn how to deal with the
credit crunch and recession-proof your finances?

    Premiering on Monday, February 2 at 10PM ET/7PM PT on Corus
Entertainment's VIVA and W Network, Dollars & Sense tackles everything you
need to know about your money from earning it to spending, investing and
saving it.

    Hosted by Alison Griffiths, financial journalist and host of the
successful W Network series Maxed Out, Dollars & Sense kicks off its first
season with an episode we can all relate to: the Get Out of Debt Primer.

    "Too many people's lives are controlled by debt, but it doesn't have to
be that way. Something as simple as tracking expenses can save you thousands
of dollars and put you on the road to managing debt," comments Griffiths.

    Every week this 30-minute, LIVE call-in show focuses on a different
financial topic and tackles viewers' questions via calls and emails. "Money is
the last taboo," says Griffiths, "but now people want to talk about it, admit
their mistakes and find solutions."

    In this timely series, Griffiths and her special guests offer expert
advice and guidance on everything to do with money. From navigating the credit
maze, kids and finances, investing and real estate, to tips on retirement
planning and frugal living, financial expert Alison Griffiths covers it all.
Most importantly, Dollars & Sense gives viewers the opportunity to ask the
questions that they want answered. In the midst of the worst economic climate
we've seen in decades, Dollars & Sense empowers viewers to take control of
their financial destiny.

    Alison Griffiths is frank yet empathetic, and hugely insightful. She is a
charismatic broadcaster and a powerful consumer advocate. If you're going to
take any financial advice, you will take it from her...
