NASHVILLE, Tenn. Dave Ramsey, host of "The Dave Ramsey Show" and author of three New York Times best-sellers, has been named winner of the Radio Ink's Readers Choice Award in the Financial/Consumer Talk category. According to the magazine, the awards were established to recognize those syndicated/network programs that the readers believe are the best in the business.
"Of course it's always great to be recognized by your peers," said Bill Hampton, vice president of "The Dave Ramsey Show." "In this case it is especially satisfying because it means not only do the radio stations enjoy working with us but listeners feel Dave is the best as well."
Last May, Radio Ink invited radio executives, managers, programmers and marketing executives to vote on which programs were working best on their stations. They asked which personalities listeners like most, which programs programmers wish they could find more of and likewise, which programs they wish they could steal from competing stations.
There were 13 categories. Along with Ramsey, winners included Sean Hannity, Don Imus, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, John Tesh, and Paul Harvey.
Nationally syndicated live radio program, "The Dave Ramsey Show" focuses on life, love and relationships and how they happen to revolve around money. The three hour show has been aggressively syndicated for four years and can now be heard on more than 200 radio stations nationwide by more than two million listeners weekly. "The Dave Ramsey Show" is the largest independently owned and operated talk radio show.
