(DALLAS-FT. WORTH, TX) Financial and retirement expert Jim Poe, host of The Found Money Report radio program, will be heard on KRLD Radio at 10AM Saturdays, effective August 31, 2013. The Found Money Report features information, tips and research designed to help listeners prepare for success in retirement. Previously the program was heard on Sunday at 1PM. KRLD, owned by CBS, is the most listened to news station in DFW with a weekly audience of over 500,000 persons.
Poe is a regular contributor to The Consumer Team radio program, which is broadcast Saturdays from 5-7PM on KRLD. Consumer Team host, Pete Thomson, commented on The Found Money Report’s new broadcast time. He stated, “Saturday midday is one of the most listened to times of the week. The move up to Saturday at 10AM is a huge compliment to Jim Poe and the credibility he brings to the airwaves of Dallas-Ft. Worth. His success on both Wall Street and Main Street makes him uniquely qualified to be an authority on investing and retirement planning.” Thomson serves as co-host of The Found Money Report.
Jim Poe, who is also the founder and CEO of Texas Retirement Specialists, expressed excitement over the new airtime for his program. He said, “Our approach on the air is pretty simple. We just want to help people prepare for success in retirement. When KRLD management came to us with the invitation to move into one of the most listened to hours of the weekend, we were very honored. And now, I’m excited that more people are going to be able to hear our program.”
Thomson described The Found Money Report as different than other financial, investment or retirement programs on the radio. He added, “Jim was very clear when we started that he didn’t want to do an on-air pitch for financial products. It’s important to him to give our listeners information that they can use in their lives regardless of whether they ever come into Jim’s office. As a result, The Found Money Report is very interesting to listen to. We feature news, research, tips and through it all we have quite a bit of fun.”
In each Found Money Report broadcast, listeners hear a very genuine banter between Poe and Thomson. Each broadcast starts with the week’s financial news as delivered by Jim Poe. Thomson serves as the announcer, keeping the show on schedule and setting up topics for Poe to comment on. Pete Thomson, who gives a weekly historical report called “The Way Back Machine”, said he thinks the show’s attraction is its real sound. Thomson added, “Listeners can tell when a program is real or scripted. Jim Poe really enjoys helping people and it shows on the air.”
