2017 marks 20 years that Mike Nowak has spent talking about gardening, the environment and green living on Chicago radio. In January, The Mike Nowak Show moved to 1590AM WCGO, where it airs on Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon. Previously, Mike hosted programs on WGN Radio WCPT 820AM and Que4 Radio.
For two seasons, he was co-host of the local gardening and food television program, Dig In Chicago. His award-winning column has appeared on the inside back page of Chicagoland Gardening Magazine since 2003. In 2014, he released his book, “Attack of the Killer Asparagus and Other Lessons Not Learned in the Garden”, which is based on those Chicagoland Gardening Magazine columns. Mike co-founded the Midwest Ecological Landscape Alliance (MELA) and served as MELA’s president for four years. He is an Illinois Master Gardener and Openlands TreeKeeper, a current board member of the Illinois Recycling Association and past president of the Chicago Recycling Coalition, where he served on the board for more than a decade.
