“South Shore Clean Cities is thrilled to renew our partnership with Lakeshore Public Radio,” South Shore Clean Cities Executive Director Carl Lisek said. “We love sharing information about the sustainable transportation and clean energy initiatives of our members and partners. Knowing we can do so while supporting public radio is an added benefit for everyone involved.”

Lisek will serve as host for “Green Fleet Radio,” interviewing guests in the Lakeshore Public Radio studios in Merrillville on topics pertaining to South Shore Clean Cities’ mission.

South Shore Clean Cities is a nonprofit, member-based coalition dedicated to promoting sustainable transportation and clean energy options in Northern Indiana. South Shore Clean Cities is one of nearly 100 U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities coalitions.

South Shore Clean Cities previously partnered with Lakeshore Public Radio to produce Lisek’s “The Green Commuter” radio show from 2013-2015.
