CALLERS TO THE DAVE RAMSEY SHOW ELIMINATE MORE THAN $25 MILLION IN DEBT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. Callers to Dave Ramseys Debt Free Friday shows eliminated $25,042,769 in 2008. On the The Dave Ramsey Show on the Fox Business Network, callers paid off $6,948,569 while callers to the radio show of the same name eliminated $18,094,200. This impressive total doesnt even include debt reported on other days, through Financial Peace University classes nationwide or by any other means.
Ramseys syndicated radio show airs in more than 375 markets week across the United States. The Dave Ramsey Show on the Fox Business Network debuted October 2007. Listeners from across the country call in daily to ask Ramsey about: how to stop fighting with their spouse, teach their kids about money, save for retirement, kick a gambling habit and other life issues they are struggling with. Fridays, however, are almost exclusively saved for calls from listeners who are celebrating being debt-free. Lara Johnson, who screens callers for the shows and updates the debt-free figure, says, Callers are elated when theyve finally accomplished what theyve worked so hard for a life without debt. Theyre excited to share their success, and Dave is always the first to congratulate them.
Callers to the shows reveal how, through the use of Ramseys advice, they were able to eliminate debt and the destruction it brings from their lives. A running total is kept, throughout the year, of the amount of debt reported by callers to the Friday shows.
