- Steve Williams, producer, The Gil Gross Program, KGO Radio

I’ve been doing general interest talk radio for over 25 years. I can’t think of another guest who deals with the subject of credit and personal budgets that can actually hold an audience. As it is, listeners have a short attention span when you talk about “personal credit” and especially on FM, yet Gerri Detweiler keeps the phone ringing and gives vital information to listeners with great solutions and compassion. All the while not making it sound like an infomercial for a book or service. She is excellent.

- Allan Handelman, host of The Allan Handelman Show

Gerri Detweiler is the first call I make when I need a guest to give advice or explain issues around credit and debt. She knows the subject cold and has a gift for explaining things in a way my listeners can understand.

- Mark Mills, Host, Market Wrap, WBIX radio in Boston

Gerri Detweiler is a consumer advocate and America’s top credit expert. We rely on Gerri to present information and advice our diverse audience has come to expect—proven strategies they can use to more efficiently manage their credit and personal finance.

- Marta Trinkl, producer, Home & Family Finance™ Radio
