Elk Grove Radio Host Tackles the Silver Tsunami

Census 2000 counted 79.6 million U.S. residents born in the years 1946 to 1964, inclusive. These are the Baby Boomer generation. And now Sue Zawacki, host of Aging Info Radio, proposes that to reach them, we need to recognize that “demographically we are on the forefront of a silver tsunami.”

An entrepreneur with more than decade of experience in senior care, Zawacki believes that there is a growing need for education and resources in the aging and elder care industry targeted to baby boomers and others “My program's philosophy is that boomers and seniors are aging, but not growing older,” says Zawacki

As of January 2012 Aging Info Radio started broadcasting Saturday mornings at 6am on AM 560WIND. The coverage area for AM 560WIND is all of Chicagoland, southern Wisconsin, N.W. Indiana and S.W. Michigan with the potential to reach nearly half a million listeners and millions more by the way of where the show streams live.

“From January 1st, 2011 and over the next 19 years, every single day more than 10,000 Baby Boomers will reach the age of 65. This new generation will present unprecedented challenges to the nation's healthcare, financial and housing industries. My role is to explore healthy aging, aging in place, elder care, boomer & senior lifestyles, retirement communities, wealth at retirement and related topics,” said Zawacki.

Through interviews with lively, expert guests, Zawacki seeks to keep others moving forward while connecting them to help one another with education and resources.
