“Nationally syndicated radio broadcaster, keynote speaker and leadership trainer”
Farmer and rancher…popular author…nationally syndicated radio broadcaster…it’s a unique combination that captivates and challenges audiences to action. Since 1996 Andrew McCrea has traveled the nation, producing the “American Countryside” features that are heard each day on radio stations coast-to-coast. 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.
But what makes Andrew unique is the broad background his life encompasses. He continues to manage and work on his family’s 3500 acre ranch in northwest Missouri. He checks cattle on horseback and even tracks down news stories on his cell phone while operating a combine or tractor. His blend of humor and real-life strategies for living life with purpose inspire groups to action. He has provided leadership programs for groups in 49 states, addressing audiences of up to 10,000 people.
He believes in building strong communities. He is the past chairman of the Heartland Foundation, a group that promotes the “healthy communities” concept of raising the quality of life in rural and urban areas. Andrew is also a certified lay speaker, a role that brings him to speak at many churches on topics of faith.
He is the author of four books including the Ippy Award Winner, “American Countryside: Where Does Lost Luggage Go?” All of his publications are insightful books about life and leadership based on the interesting stories featured on the radio program. From coast-to-coast and around the world, Andrew brings his unparalleled insights to audiences…inspiring and motivating them to make real world differences in life.
