Dave Ramsey, GateHouse News Service syndicated columnist, personal money-management expert and popular national radio personality, will be inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame April 9.
From a National Association of Broadcasters press release Monday:
"Ramsey's nationally syndicated radio program, 'The Dave Ramsey Show,' is heard by 6 million listeners each week on more than 500 radio stations and is streamed on Daveramsey.com. On the show, Ramsey gives listeners advice on responsible money management so they can care for their families and retire with ease. In 2009, he was honored with a prestigious NAB Marconi Award.
"By age 26, Ramsey had established a $4 million real estate portfolio, but lost it by age 30. Using the wisdom he gained, Ramsey rebuilt his finances. In 1992, Ramsey founded financial counseling company The Lampo Group Inc., which he developed into a multi-million dollar company and nationally recognized brand. Ramsey also created Financial Peace University to help people erase debt and develop sound money management habits. One and a half million families have attended FPU classes at their workplace, church, military base or community group. More than 10,000 educational institutions offer his high school and college curriculums."
Ramsey joins the ranks of previous NAB Radio Broadcasting Hall of Fame inductees Bob Uecker, Gerry House, Ron Chapman, Vin Scully, Jack Buck, Harry Carey, Larry Lujack, Rick Dees, Dick Purtan and Dick Orkin.
Ramsey has been distributed by GateHouse News Service since February 2009, and his columns are seen weekly by readers of more than three dozen GateHouse newspapers and more than 300 GH websites.
