moneytrack 270pxJanson Media today announced the release of the third season of the finance series MoneyTrack (36 x 30′) to international TV, VOD, DVD, Non-Theatric, and New Media markets. Each episode of MoneyTrack shares stories from real people and unbiased education from experts that help viewers take control of their finances and get their money management on the right track.

On the third season of MoneyTrack, co-hosts Pam Krueger and Jack Gallagher cut through the clutter to offer need-to-know- information on investing money in real estate, stocks, bonds and commodities. Topics include: thriving during a recession; navigating retirement; finding the best 401K plans; managing the financial and emotional strains of caring for children and aging parents and avoiding investment fraud. Pam and Jack are joined by guests such as TV personality Ben Stein, syndicated personal finance writer Jane Bryant Quinn, and “Investing 101″ reporter Rob Black, who provide tips for those seeking to take greater control over their finances.

“Part of the series is dedicated to teaching investors how to protect themselves against potential abuse,” said Pamela Krueger, executive producer and host of MoneyTrack. “This is an entirely new breed of personal finance programming designed to educate consumers about saving, investing and protecting their assets. We recognize that many consumers are threatened by their lack of understanding about finances,” said Krueger. “MoneyTrack is designed to show consumers that they do not have to know everything about business or Wall Street in order to retire and live well.”

The series also includes a layman’s guide to the global economy that explains what a global economy means to every investor’s future. Each show also includes a “Scam Alert” report to help viewers avoid the most common frauds.

MoneyTrack is funded entirely through a grant from the Investor Protection Trust (IPT) (www.investorprotection.org), a nonprofit organization devoted to investor education. Since 1993 the IPT has worked to provide the independent, objective investor education needed by all Americans to make informed investment decisions.
