Ray Lucia Retiring After Nearly 40 Years
Ray Lucia announced his retirement from broadcasting after almost 40 years today. Lucia’s last broadcast will be on June 28, 2019.
“After discussing it with Jeanne, we both felt the time was right,” says 69-year-old Lucia. “I have spent decades telling others how to enjoy their retirement years, and it was time to listen to my own advice.”
The Ray Lucia Show debuted on KFMB-AM San Diego in 1990. The show was syndicated nationally in 2000 on Business Talk Radio Network, now known as BizTalkRadio.
In 2006, the TV version of The Ray Lucia Show debuted on BizTV.
“Very rarely does a radio and television program come along that both entertains and informs listeners and viewers,” says BizTV and BizTalkRadio COO Scott Miller. “There is no doubt in my mind that thousands of families have benefited from Ray’s wisdom on how to manage money. He is from a generation of broadcasting that will be deeply missed.”
In 2009, Talkers Magazine named Lucia as one the “100 Most Important Radio Talk Show Hosts in America.” A once frequent guest on Fox News, Fox Business and CNBC, Lucia now plans to spend his retirement years in San Diego with family.
