'The Root Live' has examined money, family, careers in its 2015 season

Photo: Maddie Brooks"The Root Live: Bring it to the Table," the Prudential-sponsored web series, has tackled some of Americans' most vexing financial concerns in its more than 60 episodes. The series, which began airing four years ago with The, a leading online news source for African Americans, brings some of the industry’s most well-informed experts "to the table" to discuss those issues.

The 2015 fall season, which closes at the end of December, has already covered topics like financial etiquette, male and female breadwinners, identity theft, social entrepreneurship, money and children, and tax tips.

"Prudential’s objective in sponsoring the series is to deliver information that helps consumers handle everyday challenges and those that span a career or a lifetime," says Mammen Verghis, vice president, Multicultural Marketing for Prudential. "'The Root Live' packages information that is not often discussed into segments that are a great lead-in for sometimes difficult conversations on topics like money, family and even careers."

New episodes for the current season air every Wednesday through year-end. On November 11, Prudential financial professional Maddie Brooks provided insight on important financial realities. The discussion presented tips to post-graduates navigating finances for the first time, young consumers looking to prepare for retirement early and new parents researching college savings plans.
