Personal finance guru takes show to TV
Clark Howard, who has a syndicated radio show on personal finance that airs across the country, is taking is show to television, reports Rodney Ho of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Ho writes that the show will appear on CNN Headline News during the weekend.
Ho writes, “Heâ€™s not the first personal finance guru to make the jump from radio to cable TV. Nashville-based Dave Ramsey, who champions no-debt living, has had a prime time show on Fox Business News for about a year.
“Howard hopes his gig on the weekends will be successful enough to parlay into a weekday show as well. He noted that fellow radio host Glenn Beckâ€™s payday went sky high once he got a TV gig, first with Headline News and next month, Fox News.
“During a rehearsal last week for one of his promos, Howard took out a dollar bill and pulled at it. ‘Was that too Crazy Eddie?’ he asked producer Scott Tufts, referencing a wacky sales guy for a now defunct electronics chain.”
