Celebrating a Tradition of Educating and Entertaining Millions of Americans Over the Years

This weekend, award-winning financial advisor Ric Edelman will air his 1,000th radio broadcast.

Edelman’s weekly show, The Truth About Money with Ric Edelman, features financial advisors Brandon Corso and Anderson Wozny (known on-air as Branderson) and airs in 58 radio markets, including 26 of the 30 largest. Affiliates include WABC-770AM in New York, KFI-640AM in Los Angeles, WLS-890AM in Chicago and WMAL-630AM and 105.9FM in Washington, DC – the show’s flagship station.

“So much has changed since the first show 20 years ago,” says Edelman, “but what hasn’t changed is that people still need solid financial education and advice. I am honored to have the opportunity to provide this guidance in 1,000 broadcasts.”

Widely regarded as perhaps the country’s most successful financial advisor, Edelman has been providing financial advice for 25 years; he is especially known for his ability to make financial information entertaining as well as informative.

Earlier this year, the show was ranked #2 as the most important weekend-only talk-radio show in America by TALKERS magazine,(1) and Barron’s has named Edelman the #1 Independent Financial Advisor in the Nation for a record third time.(2) The highly regarded industry website, RIABiz.com, named Ric the most influential financial advisor in America.(3) Ric has also appeared on the cover of two industry publications (Financial Advisor, April 2012, and The Register, December 2011) and Financial Planning magazine named Ric one of nine advisors with “vast Twitter followings” in 2012. His firm, Edelman Financial Services, manages $8.5 billion for more than 18,000 clients.(4)
