Transamerica Institute's radio broadcast goes global

United States, September 24, 2014

Transamerica Institute's* popular weekly broadcast on WYPR 88.1 FM in the United States is now available on iTunes. The show, ClearPath – Your Roadmap to Health & Wealth, focuses on issues related to wellness and financial security.

Americans are living longer than at any time in history, and yet extensive research conducted by the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies®* (TCRS) indicates that Americans are ill-prepared for long-term retirement.

Practical retirement advice

Launched in February 2013, ClearPath helps raise awareness about the need for action, as well as highlighting a range of practical steps available to them to begin planning for their financial security.

ClearPath is hosted by Transamerica's* Head of Corporate Communications, Greg Tucker, with commentary and insight from Catherine Collinson, Transamerica Institute's founding president and head of the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies®, and Hector De La Torre, who leads the Institute's Transamerica Center for Health StudiesSM.

Global retirement issues

Previously only available during prime radio 'drive time', this unique source of information is now available for free in Apple's iTunes store. Shows are particularly interesting for US listeners, but also cover topics which are more than relevant to a global audience.

Recent subjects include retirement issues facing the millennial generation, the Affordable Care Act and how it affects small businesses and how to prepare for Medicare.

Visit the iTunes store to download podcasts of the latest ClearPath broadcasts.
