Does Andrew personally travel to the locations featured on the American Countryside?
Yes! On a couple of occasions each year there are times when a story deadline does not allow enough time to personally travel to the location.wholesale jerseys from china But this is the only exception. Andrew personally conducts the interviews for over 90% of the shows you hear. To our knowledge, we know of no other show where the host personally travels so extensively to so many locations for a daily broadcast.
How do you find your story ideas?
Most often it is word of mouth. Andrew keeps a huge dry-erase-board full of story ideas plus he has file folders with story leads. Once he hears about it or reads about it, the story idea is recorded so that it can hopefully be used in the future. We love to hear from listeners and get their story ideas.

How do you decide where to travel?
Probably the most amazing part of the American Countryside broadcast story is that Andrew doesn’t have a travel budget!

In other words, if Andrew is speaking in Nashville, TN he’ll probably stick around for an extra day to gather stories that are in the area.

With so much travel, is Andrew ever at “home”?
You can gather a lot of stories in one day. Sometimes those interviews turn into a two-part show. It’s not uncommon for one day’s worth of interviews to produce almost two week’s worth of shows.
