Preparing for a Silver Tsunami It's been called a "silver tsunami," the swelling wave of people in Ohio over the age of 60. And it's approaching faster than expected, according to a new study Miami University. By 2050, at least a third of the populations in 16 Ohio counties will be at least 60 years old. None of the state's 88 counties had such a high percentage of 60-plus residents in 2010. What challenges, and opportunities, will a greying population bring? Tuesday at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
