David Ramsey

David L. Ramsey III is an American financial author, radio host, television personality, and motivational speaker.
Ramsey’s syndicated radio program The Dave Ramsey Show is promoted with a tagline that “It’s about your life and your money,” and it is heard on over 450 radio stations throughout the United States and Canada, as well as on XM and Sirius satellite radio. He has written numerous books. His books and broadcasts often feature a Christian perspective that reflects Ramsey’s religious beliefs. Ramsey was named the 2009 Marconi Award winner for Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year.

Ramsey’s current company, The Lampo Group, is headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee, and oversees three divisions geared toward financial counseling.

Ramsey has been featured on many media outlets including The Oprah Winfrey Show60 Minutes, and The Early Show on CBS. He recorded a pilot and six unaired episodes of The Dave Ramsey Project for CBS. He was the host of The Dave Ramsey Show, which aired at 8 p.m. ET and repeated weekdays on the Fox Business Network until June, 2010.

He formed The Lampo Group in 1992 to counsel folks hurting from the results of financial stress. He has paid the “stupid tax” (mistakes with dollar signs on the end) so hopefully some of you won’t have to. He wrote the book, Financial Peace, based on all that Sharon and He had learned, and He began selling it out of my car. With a friend of him, He started a local radio call-in show called The Money Game, now nationally syndicated as The Dave Ramsey Show.

Their company history is full of landmarks leading up to the release of our third best-selling book in 2003—The Total Money Makeover—and they’re not slowing down. The Lampo Group now has nearly 300 team members and a variety of products and services to help you reach your financial goals.
