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 #MayoClinicRadioon the Mayo Clinic Twitter page, with hundreds of thousands of followers.

Tom Shives, M.D.
A Mayo Clinic orthopedic surgeon, is the host of Mayo Clinic Radio. For more than 19 years, Dr. Shives hosted a weekly radio call-in program known as Healthline on KROC-AM in Rochester, Minn. The format was simple: interview a Mayo Clinic specialist on an interesting topic, and provide listeners with in-depth information from someone with particular expertise in the subject. Out of Healthline grew Medical Edge Weekend, and now, Mayo Clinic Radio, bringing those same valuable insights to a potentially global audience.

Tracy McCray
A long time radio talk show host in Rochester MN, is the co-host of Mayo Clinic Radio. For nearly 20 years, Tracy has been an on-air fixture at KROC in Rochester both as co-host of the Early Morning Show on KROC-FM and The Tracy McCray Show on KROC-AM. Starting in 2009, Tracy also began writing the Talk of the Town lifestyle column for the Rochester Post Bulletin newspaper. Through both radio and print, Tracy displays a knack for moderating interesting conversations and a capturing her unique take on life as a Midwestern woman. As a 25 year cancer survivor, Tracy has always held an intense curiosity about medicine and how patients can be their own best advocate when it comes to their health.

California Politician Proposes South California as 51st State

We've been doing the 50-state thing since Hawaii got the nod in 1959. But if one California politician gets his way, we're going to have to add another star to the flag.

Jeff Stone, who sits on Riverside County Board of Supervisors, is proposing that his and 12 other counties in the southern half of California break away from the Golden State and form their own state called South California.

Westboro Baptist Church Will Picket Betty Ford’s Funeral

The Westboro Baptist Church is at it again.

The fundamentalist and anti-gay group has announced it will picket the funeral of former first lady Betty Ford, who died last week, because she got divorced before marrying the man who would later become President Gerald Ford. This, the group says, made her an adulterer who "loved to sit with tawdry reporters and blather about sex."

Five Useful Mother’s Day Gifts

If you really think about it, Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to make up for all those times you gave mom a hard time during your youth. After all, a bouquet of daffodils now definitely excuses that time you snuck out of the house at 2 am. And a box of gourmet truffles?

But while flowers and chocolate are dandy, they don't last long. Treat Mom to one of these five Mother's Day gifts she'll both use and love for years to come:

5 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Easter
