“On-mission in Madison” with Chris Sorenson
When the I Love Madison show started, the hosts decided to highlight local meetups around the city. If you want to drink a beer, then run a few miles to the next bar, there is certainly a group that does that…you can find them on meetup.com. Moving forward, however, the team decided to shift the focus a little and highlight organizations around the city that are on-mission! This means that they want to talk to organizations that are helping the community in some way, whether a church, non-profit or noble cause. If you know of an organization that you feel should be featured, contact the I Love Madison show hosts, and they will work to set up a meeting!The #ILoveMadison team has decided to highlight organizations around the city that are on-mission!

Chris Reese hosts the “My Move” segment with guest Dan Tinder
Dan Tinder moved to Madison fourteen years ago, to take a job as a late night radio host. Soon after, he made the nighttime top 40 list. Dan says he initially connected to his community through his work. He is currently a sales manager for JX Peterbilt and has fallen in love with the city of Madison and all it has to offer. Some of the places he recommends are L’Etoile Restaurant, a fine dining French restaurant in the downtown area, as well Dotty Dumpling’s Dowry, a great place to get a fantastic hamburger. Dan says there are so many great festivals and events to check out, including the taste of Madison and bike night. For young families, Dan says the suburbs just outside the city offer many great options for raising children in friendly, safe neighborhoods. Check out the rest of what he had to say about this city on an isthmus!
Nicole Moll Is bringing birthday joy to kids across the nation
Nicole Moll loves parties and loves to celebrate! She wants to make each child feels special and celebrated on their birthday and empower parents around the country to do the same. To do this, she started an organization called A Box of Balloons. Every child deserves to feel special, be celebrated and have a memorable party, but unfortunately, that is not possible for many families. In America, 22% of children live below the poverty level. She believes that a birthday celebration can give families the joy and hope they may be missing.
