OSCAR WINNING RADIO AND TV BROADCASTER:
Since 1996 Andrew McCrea has traveled the nation, producing the “American Countryside” features that are heard each day on radio stations coast-to-coast. He can be heard on radio (Sirius/XM radio and approximately 100 other stations) and TV (programming is on RFD-TV– on all Dish and Direct TV households plus many cable systems, and about 150 local TV stations), and on such national networks as Westwood One and CBS.
Often described as today’s Charles Kuralt, he’s interviewed Emmy and Grammy winners, All-star athletes, Iditarod sled dog mushers, and even the world’s rooster crowing champion! He’s been body slammed by professional wrestlers, traveled to the launch pads at Cape Canaveral, and chronicled the plight of Central America’s coffee farmers.
The American Countryside features real people making real differences throughout our nation. Emmy Award winners, Miss America, state governors, Iditarod sled dog racers and even the winner of the National Hollerin’ contest have all been a part of this popular program. The program has won the Oscar® in Agriculture five times.
