The Consumer Team talk radio program will be featuring holiday shopping tips every week through Christmas. The Consumer Team airs Saturdays from 5-7PM Central on KRLD CBS Radio in Dallas, Texas. According to Pete Thomson, host of The Consumer Team, the holiday shopping programs will address some of the most important consumer issues surrounding holiday gift shopping. Thomson said, “Consumers do the majority of their annual spending in November and December. This year I’m very pleased with the topics we’re addressing on The Consumer Team. Many of the shopping tips are totally new concepts that haven’t been widely talked about in the media. From Black Friday to Cyber-Monday on through New Years, we’ll be sharing a ton of new and useful shopping tips and strategies.”
The Consumer Team Holiday Shopping Specials will address opportunities to save money, time and grief in both online and in-store shopping. Thomson stated, “There are two distinctive shopping worlds emerging….online and in-store. And, as our holiday shopping features will show, there are specific strategies to be used in each venue. For internet shopping, we’ll be reporting on several new and useful shopping websites and apps that have the potential to save consumers a lot of money through discounts and special promotions. Several of the websites and apps we’ll be discussing were not even on people’s radar last year. As for the in-store shopping experience, there are new tips and tricks that we’ll feature that will prepare Consumer Team listeners to get very good deals and discounts at retail locations.”
The Consumer Team radio program regularly features consumer experts from Consumer Reports Magazine and Shop Smart Magazine. Thomson said, “When it comes to consumer research and ratings, there is no better or more credible source that Consumer’s Union, Consumer Reports Magazine and Shop Smart Magazine. I’m thrilled whenever we can get one of their writers for an interview.”
