President Barack Obama today (Oct. 13) announced his choice for appointments to several administration posts. Included is Beth Kobliner, to serve as a member of the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability. The financial expert has a regular segment on public radio’s The Takeaway and is a content adviser to Sesame Workshop’s upcoming Financial Education Initiative, a bilingual outreach program to promote financial literacy in very young children. Here’s a video interview of Kobliner at last year’s TV Critics Press Tour, discussing her participation in the doc “Your Life, Your Money,” which ran on PBS in April 2009.
