United Stations is pleased to announce that Bloomberg Radio, the leading audio resource regarding information and data related to business and financial news, will once again be providing an original series of “TAX TIPS” to be broadcast during the height of the 2018 season when consumers are preparing their personal income tax filings for 2017. These “Tax Tips” segments will be 30-seconds in length and will be written and anchored by Bloomberg correspondent Peggy Collins. The full series of “Tax Tips” are slated for broadcast starting on Monday, February 5, 2018 and will be provided to stations daily (Monday through Friday) up to and including Friday, April 13th, just before the annual tax filing deadline, and they will be distributed through Bloomberg Radio’s marketing partners at United Stations Radio Networks, Inc, (“USRN”).
The Bloomberg Radio Tax Tips will be geared towards consumers and their own personal finance issues, and they will be freshly created for the 2018 tax filing season. This series will include some of the latest tax prep information, from tax law to hot trends including the increased prevalence of self-employment and tele-commuting. And in addition to its timely content, this series of tips will provide local affiliates with local, seasonal sponsorship opportunities.
