Mayo Clinic Radio

With thousands of experts from Mayo Clinic campuses in Minnesota, Florida, Arizona, and the Mayo Clinic Health System, Mayo Clinic Radio reaches listeners with an easy-to-understand, friendly approach. High interest topics include the latest news as well as information about exercise, nutrition, prevention and heart health. Mayo Clinic orthopedic surgeon Tom Shives, M.D. has hosted the hour-long program for two decades.

He and cohost Tracy McCray, a 20-year radio veteran educate and enlighten audiences every week. Mayo Clinic’s first of its kind, Center for Social Media broadens the radio conversation, engaging audiences on Facebook with its Myth or Matter of Fact segment, and on Twitter, using the hashtag #MayoClinicRadio on the Mayo Clinic Twitter page, with hundreds of thousands of followers.

If you are a listener not affiliated with the media, we encourage you to listen to our 9am Central time Saturday program on one of our affiliates or LIVE while it streams on our host station KROC-AM.  Tweet your questions prior to and during each show and talk with us on our Facebook page.
