John St. Augustine has been called “the new voice of America” by veteran broadcaster Charles Osgood and “the most influential voice on radio” by best-selling author Cheryl Richardson. Thousands of Midwest listeners tuned in daily to hear John’s view on world events and to engage themselves in his conversations with today’s leaders and heroes.
His talk radio show was created with one underlying goal - to make sure listeners have access to information that would not only entertain but also inspire them to a greater life experience.
John’s talent behind the microphone has lead to numerous broadcasting awards including three Michigan Association of Broadcasters “Best Talk Host” awards. Since the inception of his radio talk show in 1997, he has broadcast over 7500 programs and interviewed over 5,000 people from all walks of life. In July 2006, John ended his Radio Results network show when the opportunity arose to become a producer with Oprah & Friends for XM Satellite Radio. He also is the creator of the syndicated “Powerthoughts” one-minute vignettes. Since 1999, over 3,000 of these inspirational and thought provoking commentaries have aired nationally. Beginning September 25, 2006. “Powerthoughts for Living an Uncommon Life” will be heard on Oprah & Friends on XM Satellite Radio.
He is the author of Living an Uncommon Life: Essential Lessons from 21 Extraordinary People (Hampton Roads, October, 2006) and Every Moment Matters, to be released in January, 2010.
St. Augustine is also a sought-after speaker on human potential and purpose. An inspirational and gifted communicator, he has presented his message of hope and possibility to over 500,000 people via his keynotes and seminars.
While St. Augustine is proud of his many media awards and accolades, he cites his 2002 kidney donation to his daughter Amanda as his greatest achievement.
John and his wife, Jackie, have two teenagers, Amanda and Andrew. They divide their time between their homes in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and Chicago.
