So, about this show...


The Michael Koolidge Show was the first daily radio talk show in the nation hosted by a young military veteran of the current Global War on Terror, is the only statewide-syndicated radio show in Illinois and is one of the few independently syndicated shows of its kind in the nation. The show has been on the air since June of 2006, broadcasting now on ten total stations in Illinois (Rockford, Springfield, Decatur, Bloomington, Kankakee, Joliet, DeKalb, Rochelle and Quincy) at various times throughout the day, including prime-time drive on many stations, seven days a week.

A former Army captain, ‚ÄčMike's Army service took him through the hills of Kentucky, the parachute drop zones of Georgia, the swamps of Louisiana, the sands and mountains of the Mojave Desert, the windy city of Chicago, and finally to the combat zone of Kuwait and Iraq, serving in the very beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom in Kuwait and Iraq from September 2002 through September of 2003. 

Mike has a bachelor's degree in political science from Boston University and a master's degree in communication from Northwestern University. He also completed the improvisation, writing and acting programs at The Second City Training Center in Chicago and has performed in dozens of theater and commercial productions.

Mike roots hard for the Bulls & Blackhawks, with some attention paid to the Bears, White Sox and Cubs as well (and also the Mets and Jets for some reason). Mike has served on various community boards, manages a fast-pitch softball team in Sycamore every summer and is an avid golfer and doubles tennis player.

The show hits the road frequently and has broadcast from Las Vegas, Atlanta, New York City, the Jersey Shore, Iowa, both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions in Minneapolis/St. Paul and Denver in 2008, Tampa and Charlotte for the national conventions of 2012, Phoenix for both Cubs and White Sox Spring Training, Bourbonnais for Bears Training Camp, and CPAC every year since 2009 in Washington D.C. The Michael Koolidge Show can also easily broadcast from your business anytime of day or night.
