Our ‘Total Town Makeover’ series addresses the issues of why some small towns thrive while others decline. 

This two-part series details what influences young people to live and work in some communities but not in others, and how you can help your community make a turn-around for the better. 

Author and host of the syndicated radio show “American Countryside” Andrew McCrea covers these topics and more. Check out his two-sessions below, originally hosted in January of 2021.

Author and Radio Host, Andrew McCrea

Andrew McCrea draws upon a wealth of experiences when he is criss-crossing the country to deliver his messages. As a farmer and rancher from northwest Missouri, Andrew knows what it is like to move herds of cattle and work 18-hour days harvesting a crop. Add to that, his experience as a five-time Oscar-winning radio broadcaster.

Andrew brings his insights from interviewing music stars, hall of fame athletes, Iditarod sled dog mushers and even the rooster crowing champion! His daily radio program, The American Countryside has won five Oscars in Agriculture. In addition, he also produces broadcasts heard nationally on the Westwood One radio network.

He truly cares about making a difference in the lives of those he meets. He is chairman of the Heartland Foundation, a leadership foundation empowering youth and adults in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa. He also serves as a certified lay pastor and vice chairman of the Missouri Beef Industry Council.

From boardrooms to classrooms…from Alaska to Florida…speaking to groups from 10 to 10,000…Andrew has brought his message to thousands.
