Relevant, mindful, on point, fair, cutting edge..... That defines our style of programming and also our team of skilled passionate reporters. With a mission of creating engaging content, you'll find no boring markets or reciting of dull data in Aginfo radio programs or web content. Our broadcasters are adept bridge builders. By perfecting the art of short format storytelling, they are conduits between farmers, ranchers and the urban/suburban consumer. Naturally, this style of reporting plays well in metro markets like Fresno CA, Greeley CO, Boise ID, Olympia WA, and Spokane WA and also with rural farm communities. An example of audio energy we produce is our AgriBusiness Update.
As we head into this new decade, we couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of the renaissance in agriculture that evolves in virtual nanoseconds. (Think big data, micro-organic farms, precision ag, driverless tractors, drones, sustainability, antibiotics, aquaculture……) Unlike any other time in history, people are extremely passionate about knowing where their food comes from, how it’s grown, handled and how safe it is….. creating a multicultural/ multigenerational dialog that our team is committed to sharing. We are extremely proud of the fact that local radio still provides the BEST platform to tell agriculture’s compelling story, especially when so many others (think Facebook) are losing credibility.
