Nashville Radio: Dave Ramsey, WPRT Part Ways

Dave Ramsey
Personal finance guru and national radio personality Dave Ramsey is moving his show from WPRT 102.5 FM The Game in 2014, according to The Tennessean.

“The Dave Ramsey Show” switched to WPRT in January, a move that the show and the station both called a “risk.”

Now the two sides have agreed to part ways, according to a joint news release. The Game is primarily sports programming.

“We have been friends for more than 20 years, and while we enjoyed this partnership from a personal standpoint, we both realize that from a business perspective our brands would be better served if we return to our respective formats,” said Bud Walters, president and owner of Cromwell Radio Group, which owns The Game.

Ramsey’s show is heard by 6 million listeners each week on more than 500 stations. Before 102.5, Ramsey's show had a 20-year run on WWTN-FM Supertalk 99.7, where his show debuted in the fall of 1992.

Dave Ramsey reportedly is being picked-up by CCM+E's Newsradio WLAC 1510 AM.
