A new radio show titled "Who's Building Your Future?" has been launched by the Phoenix-based Institute of Construction Management & Technology (ICMT). The show will air every Thursday from 4 to 5 p.m. on KFNX 1100AM. The show can also be heard online at (www.1100kfnx.com) via streaming audio.

Hosted by Steve Cooper, ICMT's president, and Denise Van den Bossche, a LEED Accredited Professional, commercial realtor, and board member on the Central Arizona branch of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), the show features interviews with guests about contemporary issues such as solar, city incentives for green development, and greening upcoming sports events. The show is taped live and encourages listeners to call in, and it is also archived on the institute's website for the general public.

The show was developed due to the interest in and heavy demand for information on sustainability and green topics. Van den Bossche stresses the goal of using current events to educate the audience. "Our show has included the greening of the Super Bowl with the head of the NFL's Environmental Program, and a Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction prompted discussion on cars, sustainable mobility, and a new LEED-certified Mercedes dealership," says Van den Bossche.

ICMT is 100-percent online and the only university in the world exclusively dedicated to the field of construction management. Headquartered in Phoenix, ICMT offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees, as well as certifications in the construction management industry.
