Best-selling author and broadcaster Dave Ramsey will be inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Hall of Fame in April.
"Dave Ramsey has influenced countless Americans through his sound financial advice and inspirational messages," said NAB Executive Vice President of Radio John David. "We are pleased to induct him into NAB's Broadcasting Hall of Fame."
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. In 2009, he was honored with a prestigious NAB Marconi Award.
His New York Times best-selling books include Financial Peace, More Than Enough, EntreLeadership, and The Total Money Makeover, of which Thomas Nelson is publishing a 10th anniversary edition this fall.
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, which he developed into a multimillion-dollar company.
Ramsey also created Financial Peace University (FPU) 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 and community group. More than 10,000 educational institutions offer his high school and college curricula.
Ramsey will be inducted into the broadcasting hall of fame during the NAB Show Radio Luncheon, to be held April 9 in Las Vegas.
Previous inductees include Bob Uecker, Vin Scully, Jack Buck and Harry Carey.
