A new show about green living, improved air quality and renewable energy is coming to the local National Public Radio affiliate.

NPR affiliate Lakeshore Public Radio will start airing South Shore Clean Cities' "Green Fleet Radio" on Jan. 17.

“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 host the show on 89.1 FM every Wednesday at 7:23 a.m. during “Morning Edition,” then between noon and 1 p.m. during “Regionally Speaking” and at 4:21 p.m. during “All Things Considered.” He previously hosted "The Green Commuter" from 2013 to 2015.

“We are so proud to partner with South Shore Clean Cities to provide Northwest Indiana a regular place to learn about clean energy opportunities in the Region,” Lakeshore President and CEO James Muhammad said. “This is going to be amazing.”

The show also will stream online and be available for download at
