2017 marks the 25th year of the Dave Ramsey Show which is now heard on 585 stations with a weekly listening audience of 13 million. The show that focuses on financial advice, avoiding money mistakes and Ramsey’s step-by-step plan to beat debt and build wealth has earned the host an NAB Marconi Award and a spot in both the NAB and National Radio Halls of Fame.
Ramsey said back in 1992, no one could have predicted the show’s longevity or its continued growth, especially not him. “The radio show happened by accident. I lost everything because I was stupid and borrowed too much money. When I discovered and applied common sense financial principles in my own life, and began teaching them, a friend invited me on a little broke radio station to help people with their money problems. I’m sure our delivery was horrendous, but we offered truth, instruction, and hope. We’ve refined that over the years, because that’s what people need.”
