To tweet this release:


TORONTO (May 7, 2014) The world’s most notorious stockbroker turned best-selling author and motivational speaker, Jordan Belfort, hits the airwaves next week, joining host Ryan Doyle for an exclusive one-hour interview on NEWSTALK 1010’s THE LIVE DRIVE. Airing Tuesday, May 13 at 5 p.m. ET, Belfort dishes about his unbelievable journey, and shares his advice on how to achieve financial success.


As the inspiration for Martin Scorsese’s Oscar®-winning film The Wolf of Wall Street, in which he was depicted by Best Actor-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio, Belfort’s meteoric rise to vast wealth, his inevitable arrest, and downfall have since become a worldwide sensation. Listeners will have the opportunity to hear all the “stranger than fiction” stories as Belfort tells of the excessive opulence, extreme substance abuse, and over-the-top debauchery.


“We are excited to welcome Jordan Belfort to the Newstalk studios, and for the opportunity to connect Torontonians with this extraordinary life story during the drive home,” said Mike Bendixen, Program Director, NEWSTALK 1010. “We aim to push the envelope by delivering the most interesting personalities, stories, and unique content to our listeners, which defines and distinguishes us from other radio stations.”


Closing out the Canadian leg of his speaking tour on Friday, May 15 at the Toronto Convention Centre, Belfort has spent the past several years touring internationally as a consultant and motivational speaker, while also appearing as a guest commentator on CNN, CNBC, and BBC.


THE LIVE DRIVE with host Ryan Doyle airs weekdays on NEWSTALK 1010 from 4 - 7 p.m. ET and can be streamed live and on-demand on
