The Mike Nowak Show is all about growing things and greening the world.
Our mission is to get the word out about a way of living and buying, of planning and working that we believe will change–and possibly save–the world.
Our focus is the environment, green living and green gardening. We talk about everything local and sustainable.
Our method is to talk with the people who know about everything from native plants to power plants. Mike Nowak is one of the best interviewers on the air, with knowledge and experience in this area that goes back more than a decade. He’s the voice people in Chicago have grown to trust when it comes to what’s green and/or growing. And Peggy Malecki, publisher of Natural Awakenings Chicago, is always up on everything that can make life healthier and happier.
Our style is accessible, entertaining and informative. Mike came to horticulture and the environment by way of show biz, and The Mike Nowak Show is always entertaining. Both Peggy and Rick DiMaio, the show’s meteorologist, share Mike’s ability to engage listeners.
Our audience is educated, aware, and deeply interested in the environment and other progressive issues. Whether listening to the show or communicating with us and each other on the social networks, they form a community that cares.
We believe in the triple bottom line–people, planet, profit–and we work with others who share that belief.
