Dave Ramsey finds his third Atlanta home in two years: 1160/WCFO-AM

ramsey

Financial expert Dave Ramsey has landed at his third home in two year: 1160/WCFO-AM. He started today at 2 p.m., running live until 5 p.m.

Ramsey, who works out of Nashville and is heard on more than 500 radio stations nationwide with six million listeners,  spent two years at AM750 and 95.5FM News/Talk WSB at night. When Rush Limbaugh moved to WSB last month, Ramsey was the odd man out.

He established himself for many years in Atlanta on the former news/talk station at 640/WGST-AM in late afternoons until late 2010. WGST itself became Hispanic sports talk in late September.

WGST’s departure has been WCFO’s gain. “It has helped with advertisers and listeners” now that WGST is gone, said Jeff Davis, who runs WCFO-AM.

In October, WCFO picked up Glenn Beck from 9 to noon. Beck had been a long-time talker on WGST.

WCFO moved Mike Huckabee to evenings to accommodate Ramsey.

“I like to have people potential clients have heard of,” Davis said.

Good for him. He is good to listen to except for the rare occassion when his right-wingness slips in. Now it’s time for Clark Howard to find a new home. WSB has all but discarded him.

I believe Clark’s new home or at least second home will be in Washington, DC when he becomes Senator Clark Howard in January 2015.

Dave Ramsey doesn’t always tell people what they want to hear – pay your bills, take responsibility for your actions – but his tough love approach has gotten a lot of people out of debt.

To Clark Howard even the most deadbeat debtor is a victim, and the key to financial success is to avoid your obligations by gaming the system.

I agree with Shemeka. Clark is always looking for the way out of paying the bill. How to stop the evil bill collectors from calling should be replaced with If you do owe the money–PAY IT!!! For the most part I like Clark and his show, but this is the one main thing that always irritated me. I don’t listen to Dave Ramsey mainly because he interjects his religious beliefs into his show. If I wanted to listen to a religious brodcast, there are shows for that.

Hey Rodney,
Do you happen to know what program will fill Dave Ramsey’s slot from 10-1?

I think they would do best if they also had a show on mutual funds and stocks.
