Pete D'Arruda, owner of Capital National Financial Group and local television and radio personality, will be featured on The Biography Channel's documentary series "Profiles of Success."
D'Arruda, also known as Coach Pete, is no stranger to being on the air. The registered financial consultant and investment advisor hosts his own syndicated radio show "Financial Safari" that is broadcast on over 100 stations, including WRDU and WCHL, across the country. He also has a TV show by the same name that airs on WTVD on Saturdays.
"(The Biography Channel was) here in July for a week, filming," D'Arruda said. "They followed me around doing TV and radio events. I'm curious to see how it turned out."
The show also filmed behind the scenes of the financial planning operation, and interviewed some of Capital National Financial Group's charities, including The V Foundation's Nick Valvano.
"Somebody from the channel heard our radio show," D'Arruda said. "... (It's) pretty cool to see a little local planning firm on TV."
"Profiles of Success: Coach Pete's Financial Safari" is scheduled to air on Wednesday at 7:30 a.m.
