Ramsey Network Broadcast Veteran Brian Mayfield Retires
Brian Mayfield, who spent nearly 15 years serving in a variety of roles at Ramsey Solutions, including five years as executive vice president of Ramsey Network, has retired. Under Mayfield’s leadership, “The Ramsey Show” has grown into the second-largest syndicated talk radio show in America with 640 radio affiliate stations, more than 1 billion podcast downloads and over a billion YouTube views. More than 30 years ago, “The Ramsey Show” began with personal finance expert Dave Ramsey sharing financial advice on a Nashville radio station. Now, a variety of Ramsey Personalities co-host with Ramsey and help listeners with their questions about money, relationships and mental wellness every weekday.
“Over the last 15 years, Brian Mayfield has truly become one of the top talk radio executives in the nation and a good friend while he has been with Ramsey Solutions,” said Ramsey. “His early retirement is a loss for all of us at Ramsey and the industry.”
“It has been an honor to work alongside Dave and the rest of the team,” said Mayfield. “I am very proud of the success we have seen to date, but I am even more excited to watch and experience the success of Ramsey Network into the future as a fan. We are sometimes faced with situations that dictate change, I’m embracing mine and looking forward to quality time with my wife and family — I’m truly blessed.”
Broadcast veteran Blake Thompson, Ramsey’s first producer when the show began, was named executive vice president of Ramsey Network last year. He will continue to serve in that role.
