Press Release




NASHVILLE, Tenn.Callers to Dave Ramsey’s “Debt Free Friday” shows eliminated $23,972,100 in 2009. On the “The Dave Ramsey Show” on the Fox Business Network, callers paid off $7,871,200 while callers to the radio show of the same name eliminated $16,100,900. This impressive total doesn’t even include debt reported on other days, through Financial Peace University classes nationwide or by any other means. 

Ramsey’s syndicated radio show airs in more than 450 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 they’ve finally accomplished what they’ve worked so hard for – a life without debt. They’re excited to share their success, and Dave is always the first to congratulate them.”

Callers to the shows reveal how, through the use of Ramsey’s 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.
