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 daily on radio (Sirius/XM satellite radio and over 100 local radio stations) and television, and on such national networks as Westwood One and CBS.
Andrew does all of his broadcast work on-location and that has led him to interview guests in all 50 states and every continent except Antarctica. He’s interviewed Emmy and Grammy winners, All-star athletes, Iditarod sled dog mushers, and even the world’s rooster crowing champion! The program has won the Oscar® in Agriculture five times.
Andrew’s keynotes and training programs provide an insightful guide that inspires leadership at every level. Andrew presents with energy, enthusiasm and expertise onstage, and his sincere, “down home” delivery style endears him to audiences.
Andrew’s uniqueness lies in the broad background his life encompasses. He continues to manage and work on his family’s 4500-acre ranch in northwest Missouri, McCrea Family Farms. The family farm is split evenly between row crop production (corn and soybeans) and pasture for cattle. He knows what it is like to move herds of cattle and work 18-hour days harvesting a crop.
Andrew is the author of six 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.
Andrew 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. He is chairman of the Community Foundation of Northwest Missouri and a past chairman of the Missouri Beef Industry Council. Andrew has also served as a certified lay speaker, a role that brings him to speak at many churches on topics of faith.
What makes some people stand out from the crowd? What’s the “extra” they have that others don’t? Andrew’s thousands of interviews from every state and six continents reveal three qualities the “Extraordinary” have that others do not. They are the qualities that bring individual and team success and that add life, to life itself! Listen, laugh and learn the secrets to being Extraordinary in what you do!
