June 21, 2011: NALC President Fredric V. Rolando did back-to-back-to-back drive-time radio interviews Tuesday morning with 15 broadcast stations or networks across the country, ranging from an Ohio network with 35 affiliates to a station in Boston, from Fox News Network with 300 affiliates nationwide to the 40 affiliates of Montana’s Northern Broadcasting Network.
President Rolando's full interview on Bradford, PA's Newsradio 1490 WESB.
Residents of Phoenix and Miami, Buffalo and Dallas were among those who heard talk of the real financial situation of the Postal Service including the pre-funding problem and the legislative fix involving the internal transfer of USPS funds, the importance of maintaining six-day mail delivery, our ability to help the Postal Service adapt to society’s changing needs, and the positive role letter carriers play in every community in America from the Stamp Out Hunger food drive to looking after the elderly to the Cities Readiness Initiative.
During the marathon three-hour session from his Washington office, Rolando managed to effectively get across the truth about USPS finances while describing the value of letter carriers in the communities we serve, as evidenced by the hosts’ reactions and subsequent questions.
