The Financial Safari began as a radio show on one station in North Carolina in 2007 when Peter J. D’Arruda was offered a chance to share his financial expertise on the air. After receiving many calls from listeners to that first show urging him to continue, “Coach Pete,” as he quickly became known, built a radio and television studio at his office in North Carolina, and began to produce the weekly show. Today, the show can be heard and seen on radio and television stations across the United States as well as online.
The mission of the Financial Safari is to equip you with the tools and knowledge that you need to successfully navigate through today’s complex financial jungle. Each week the hosts and guests on the show reveal the latest developments in the financial world to keep you informed of changes that may affect you personally while sharing some common-sense strategies that will help you make the most out of your retirement savings.
