NASHVILLE, Tenn. Dave Ramsey, nationally syndicated radio talk show host and New York Times best-selling author, held a nationwide town hall meeting on Thursday, April 23 where he discussed what's happening with the economy, how we got here, and where we're going. Town Hall for Hope, was hosted by Fox Business Network's David Asman and broadcast live from LifeChurch.tv in Oklahoma City, Okla. Ramsey addressed a nation struggling with hope.

"Activity is going to be your answer. You've got to get up, take action and get moving! Failure is not bad. Failure has got to be an option, because if you think it's chasing you, you'll run towards excellence!" said Ramsey during the event.

Over 1 million people participated in the live broadcast heard on the radio, seen on the Fox Business Network, and delivered to over 6,000 webcast locations across the country making it the largest syndicated webcast to date.

"Town Hall for Hope is a striking example of the extraordinary intimacy radio listeners enjoy with personalities they trust. Dave stands tall for our industry at a time when we're painfully short on ambassadors." Phil Zacary, President, Curtis Media Group.
