(Buffalo, NY) – Award-winning nationally syndicated personal finance columnist Michelle Singletary will speak at the Buffalo City Forum and buffet luncheon on Monday, December 7 at 12:15 pm. The FORUM takes place in the WNED studios, 140 Lower Terrace, Buffalo.
This community speaker series, open to the public, is produced by WNED-AM 970 and Leadership Buffalo and hosted by WNED Director of News and Public Affairs Jim Ranney. The hour-long FORUM, which includes a Question and Answer session with the speaker, will be broadcast live (on WNED-AM and wned.org/news) beginning at 1 pm. (Attendees must be seated by 12:45 pm.)
Singletary is perhaps best known as the author of “The Color of Money” column for The Washington Post, carried by about 120 newspapers, including The Buffalo News. She recently contributed her down-to-earth advice to the national WNED documentary, YOUR LIFE, YOUR MONEY, which premiered on PBS in September.
Singletary is a prominent contributor and guest expert for major media outlets, including National Public Radio and PBS’ Tavis Smiley. Her personal finance segments have appeared on Oprah, The View and major network news programs. Her own national television program for TV One, Singletary Says, has been described as “a personal finance reality show.” Her books include Your Money and Your Man: How You and Prince Charming Can Spend Well and Live Rich and the upcoming The Power to Prosper: 21 Days to Financial Freedom.
