Providence Financial Retirement Show KNX 1070, Saturdays, 6-7 AM PST and Sundays, 7-8AM PST

Unfortunately, many people spend more time planning for their annual vacations than they do for their years in retirement. With studies showing that more and more people are enjoying 30+ years in retirement, that can be a recipe for disaster.

That’s why, since 2017, The Providence Financial Retirement Show has addressed the financial issues that matter most to individual investors, retirees, business owners and anyone hoping to retire in the near future.

This weekly radio program delivers a plain-language, no-nonsense, educational approach to financial success – each Saturday at 6 AM PST and Sunday at 7 AM PST on KNX 1070.

What you don’t know CAN hurt you. Retirement is the most expensive purchase you’ll ever make and because you only get one shot, you better get it right.

At Providence Financial, our passion is helping you make it across the retirement goal line with the confidence you need to win the game!”
