NEW YORK, June 19, 2019 — Weekly investment and personal finance series Consuelo Mack WealthTrack launches Season 16 nationwide on public television beginning Friday, July 5 at 7:30 p.m. ET (check local listings). WealthTrack opens the new season with an exclusive interview with Bill Miller, founder, Chairman and Chief Investment Officer of Miller Value Partners, joined by his two primary co-managers, Samantha McLemore and Bill Miller IV, who share their investing discipline and approach with Anchor and Executive Producer Consuelo Mack.

The Season 16 premiere is the first in WealthTrack's new “Next Generation Investors” interview series.

“Most of us have an investment lifespan of 50-60 years so it's important to know who will be running our portfolios when the baton gets passed,” says Mack. “Over the years, WealthTrack has identified individuals and firms with long histories of investment excellence. Our plan is to meet the next generation of investors who will carry on the distinctive and disciplined approach of those firms.”

Future “Next Generation Investors” interviews will feature small company stock pioneer Chuck Royce of The Royce Premier Fund and Royce International Fund's portfolio manager David Nadel explaining the distinctive characteristics of small foreign companies and the multiple investing opportunities many provide.  

WealthTrack's 16th season will also explore critical personal finance topics, including tax advantaged investing, socially responsible investing and how to diversify income sources internationally, save money in retirement and maximize Medicare and Social Security benefits. Dedicated to helping viewers build lifelong financial security, the series will continue to provide trustworthy, understandable advice from the best minds in the world of business and finance, including exclusive interviews with acknowledged “Great Investors” and “Financial Thought Leaders.” Returning exclusive guests include founder and chief economist Ed Hyman of Evercore ISI and Treasury bond expert Robert Kessler of Kessler Investment Advisors.

Launched in July 2005, Consuelo Mack WealthTrack remains the only program on television devoted to long-term diversified investing, and is seen on stations in markets that account for 86% of U.S. TV households, including 28 of the top 30 markets. An award-winning business journalist, Mack handpicks each guest based on their long-term track records, professional reputation and integrity to provide the best information about investing, personal finance and retirement planning amidst economic, market and political changes. Money magazine named WealthTrack “The Best Money on TV.” USA Today praised Mack's interview style as “quietly intelligent, thoughtful and aimed at a well-informed audience.”
