Chattanooga, TN. – FOOLIN' AROUND WITH NPR and WUTC-FM
The Motley Fool Radio Show from NPR will debut on WUTC-FM beginning Sunday, November 2, 2003. With their foolish style and hard-wired wit, hosts (and brothers) David and Tom Gardner bring their financial wisdom to NPR's first weekly, one-hour program dedicated to discussing the world of money. WUTC will air the show every Sunday from 6 PM to 7 PM.
Over nearly a decade, the brothers have garnered the loyal following of experienced stockbrokers and novice investors alike, reaching millions of people each week through an award-winning website, a series of acclaimed books and a syndicated weekly newspaper column. Their column runs in the Sunday edition of The Chattanooga Times Free Press. Now, every weekend public radio listeners across the nation will hear and learn from The Motley Fool approach to personal finance, which has been praised by The Wall Street Journal as humorous and savvy.
The Motley Fool Radio Show will be a great addition to our programming schedule, says Mark Colbert, WUTC's Program Director. We've been looking for a financial show to follow Sunday's ATC Weekend Edition. This show is very informative and well-produced, providing crucial financial advice to listeners concerned about investments, stocks & bonds, money-market accounts, learning how to become good financial investors today and tomorrow.
WUTC is our NPR radio home and we couldn't be more proud, said Tom Gardner. NPR represents the gold-standard of radio broadcasting and together we're working to make The Motley Fool Radio Show the best money show on the air.
The show will build on the Gardner brothers three successful years on commercial radio. It will include a lively mix of guest interviews, listener call-in segments, and games. The brothers will cover a range of money matters everything from getting out of debt and paying for college to avoiding the pitfalls of mutual funds and learning how to invest in the stock market. Guest interviews will include CEO's, celebrities, politicians, small business owners, and writers.
Tune in each Sunday at 6 pm (November 2, 2003), for The Motley Fool Radio Show.
