A new, weekly radio program about coins and other collectibles has been launched by Barry Suppler, President of Stuppler & Company in Woodland Hills, California and the Immediate Past President of the American Numismatic Association. The one-hour program, "What's It Really Worth?," is broadcast each Saturday at 9 p.m. Pacific time on one of the top-rated Los Angeles radio stations, TalkRadio 790 KABC-AM, and is available around the world online at www.KABC.com.
"The show is designed to be both entertaining and informative. We'll be covering virtually all areas of the collecting world ranging from art, baseball cards and sports memorabilia, rare books and historical documents, comic books, jewelry items, and of course, rare coins and gold bullion," said Stuppler.
"I'll be interviewing experts in various collectibles areas, looking at issues such as storage and insurance, the best ways to buy, sell or trade, and tax issues related to collectibles. The listeners can call in live or email their questions and digital pictures to become better educated about collectibles and their values," he explained.
The inaugural sponsors of "What's It Really Worth?" are Heritage Auctions (www.HA.com), Mint State Gold (www.MintStateGold.com) and the Nook Restaurant (www.NookBistro.com).
The first show was broadcast on January 22, 2011, and Stuppler awarded a one-gram .9999 gold Credit Suisse ingot to the winner of "the Gold Trivia Question."
Stuppler currently serves as President of the California Coin and Bullion Merchants Association and is on the Board of Directors of the Industry Council for Tangible Assets (ICTA) and the Board of the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG).
KABC's strong signal serves Southern California from Santa Barbara to San Diego. The radio station is a division of Citadel Broadcasting Company.
