Colin Gabler to be featured on WATH 970 talk show Nov. 29

From Staff Reports | Nov 21, 2017

Colin Gabler, an assistant professor of marketing in the Ohio University College of Business, will be the featured guest on the Party Line talk show with Dave Palmer on WATH radio from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Wed., Nov. 29. Listeners can tune in to 970 AM/97.1 FM and can call in to ask questions at 740-592-6646.

Gabler will discuss:

  • What strategies do retailers use to try to persuade us to buy more stuff, especially around the holidays?

  • What kind of trade-offs do we make as customers—perhaps without even knowing it?

  • Online shopping is getting more and more popular. Why is that? Will that trend continue? Does that mean that traditional retail will go away completely?

  • What exactly is a shopaholic … and am I one?

  • Tips for not overspending this holiday season
