We have come to know him as a picker... a finder and rescuer of objects.
But Mike Wolfe is saving much more than objects.
His passion is fueled by a soul-deep appreciation of America’s history, values, and stories.
Those are the treasures he seeks... in rusted, worn, no-longer-perfect things. In two-lane roads that lead over a rise and then who knows where. In small towns, crumbling buildings, wrinkled faces.
He is America’s curator, preserving what he finds for the rest of us.
Fans who admire Wolfe, who is the co-star of the History Channel’s hit TV show American Pickers, will now get to learn more about him. Wolfe has landed on the cover of HOSS. He is being featured in the magazine’s fall issue which hits the newsstands across the United States and Canada on August 25, 2015.
HOSS Magazine is providing the media with a sneak-peek of the next issue and will provide behind the scenes photos and footage during Wolfe’s interview with HOSS.
With a massive readership across North America, HOSS is one of the most innovative magazines that is known as the “home owner’s simple solution.” The magazine is “your one stop shop for finding helpful, exciting and fun information to help you enjoy your home MORE.”
Sean Rice, the publisher of HOSS, says his entire team is thrilled to have Wolfe on the cover of the fall issue.
“He is sure a fascinating person,” says Rice. “I had the chance to meet him and he is down-to-earth, personable, approachable, and innovative. You know right away that he is a genuine treasure hunter and one who is so passionate with collecting moments and stories of sorts.”
Rice adds, “The media and our large readership will certainly enjoy his story and his rise to fame. Most of all everyone will get a deeper insight to what makes him tick and how he has created a unique brand as the ‘Jack Kerouac of Junk,’ as the New York Times calls him.”
To celebrate Wolfe making the next cover of the magazine, HOSS and Music City are now hosting a big contest: We Want To Send You To Nashville. The prize trip includes: Up to $1,000 stipend for airfare; 3 night hotel accommodations at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel; Meet and greet with Mike Wolfe of American Pickers and Antique Archaeology; Music City Backstage Attraction Pass (Good for 2 people to over 30 area attractions and venues); and a Music City Gift Bag.
