Weekend Programming Change Coming Soon

  Effective Saturday, January 6th

  Watchdog on Wall Street Radio Show with Christopher Markowski is replacing Business Rockstars Weekend (BRS Daily is not Affected) on Saturdays from 5 am – 7 am ET,  and  An Economy of One on Sundays from        6 pm – 7 pm ET.  There will  be a clock change.

About the Show:

For more than 15 years, Chris Markowski has imbued his vision of honesty and equality in hosting The Watchdog On Wall Street radio showEach week, Chris explains the news coming out of the complex worlds of finance, economics and politics and the impact it will have on everyday Americans.  It’s not just another weekend finance show, WatchDog On Wall Street was inspired by a life changing experience.  Christopher dedicated himself to making sure Americans received the truth regarding what was really happening behind the scenes on Wall Street; not the fabrications and half-truths that the big firms and CNBC were churning out on a daily basis.  Christopher’s task in “analyzing the analysts” has made him the chief thorn in the side of the Wall Street elite.

Never afraid to take on a giant, Christopher has gone head to head with the large brokerage houses, the dot-com scams, Enron, WorldCom and corrupt politicians. He has warned America about the largest scandals and corruption years before they made headlines. Always fighting against the lies, greed and manipulation that scarred him, The Watchdog on Wall Street has one concern, one focus only; to serve the individual investor.

About the Host:

Christopher was born and raised in upstate New York, far removed from the hustle and bustle of New York City, is the unlikely starting point for one of Wall Street’s most sincere and unique individuals. Christopher Markowski has carried the titles of author, investment banker, equity analyst, muckraker, all around trouble-maker, and most importantly consumer advocate.

He is the founder of the financial planning firm Markowski Investments, an institution that provides the highest level of financial planning to all people regardless of their net-worth.
