Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 4, 2009
ASBO Radio, the web radio program for school business officials and school financial officers last week landed on iTunes’ top 100 list. The show, produced through collaboration with the Association of School Business Officials and BAM Radio Network, hit number 43 on the iTunes Education K-12 chart in its second week on the Apple Inc. site. The program, which launched with advice for school CFOs on investing ARRA stimulus funds and strategies for spending less and getting more, was also selected by iTunes editors as “new and notable.” The program is hosted by John Musso, Executive Director of the Association of School Business Officials, and produced and syndicated by Jackstreet Media Ventures LLC. Currently featured on the iTunes education channel, the program can be downloaded at http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=328575532 or streamed at http://asbointl.org/index.asp or www.bamradionetwork.com.
“School leaders have before them a historic opportunity to stimulate the economy and improve education. Success will depend upon leadership, coordination and communication,” said Musso. “President Obama recently said that the decisions we make about how to educate our children will shape our future for generations to come. ASBO International is pleased to be able to provide school leaders with one more tool for their tool kit, ASBO Radio, as we all move forward to help shape our future for generations to come.”
