In a campaign year full of political and economic discussion, demand for expert comment from Northwood University faculty and staff has increased dramatically.

Several interviews were recently taped by South Florida CBS, ABC, NBC and FOX affiliates in a three-day span highlighting the expertise of Florida President Tom Duncan along with professors Timothy Gilbert, Dr. Cathy Bush and Mark Bush.

"It's great to see that our friends in the media are getting a chance to know Northwood University leaders and faculty first-hand," said Susan McCreery, Director of Public Relations. "Our students have long gained from our faculty's expertise, hands-on experience, and anecdotal stories, and now the general public is enjoying the opportunity as well," she said.

While Dr. Tom Duncan shared insight with ABC, NBC and FOX relating to the current administration's mortgage refinancing plan and the recent Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report, Tim Gilbert commented to CBS regarding Mitt Romney's message to small business owners who were put off by President Obama's recent comments. And in a first-ever coincidence, interviews from husband and wife professors Dr. Cathy Bush and Mark Bush aired simultaneously on different networks. Cathy Bush shared insight with ABC relating to whether campaign signs are of value as a marketing tool, and Mark Bush commented to CBS regarding President Obama's health care overhaul.
