Be reminded that the Great Outdoor Radio Show is about what information you want to know about a specific topic from a special guest. Also, feel free to ask me any Nebraska Game and Parks Commission-related questions.

I look forward to chatting with you on the air. And, by the way, stay tuned for us broadcasting LIVE at various locations in and around the community as well!

This is the Great Outdoor Radio Show on-location for a LIVE remote broadcast at a large hardware store in Omaha, NE.
