Laura McNamaraHello AgWired fans. In order to keep you even more up to date on what’s new in agribusiness we’d like to welcome Laura McNamara as a contributing editor. Laura is helping me here in Indianapolis this week covering ethanol related activities including the 91st Indy 500 this Sunday. She’s also helping me with posts on our Domestic Fuel website. We spent the day at a local pump promotion and I’ll have some more on that for you by tomorrow.

Let me tell you a little bit about Laura. She spent the last nine months covering Missouri state politics for a statewide radio network, The Missourinet. Before working there she spent last summer working in Rome, where she mostly covered news from the Vatican. She did work for the television news agency, RomeReports. Laura earned her broadcast journalism degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia. While a student, Laura also worked as a Laura McNamaratelevision reporter and fill-in anchor for KOMU NewsChannel 8 in Columbia and as a radio reporter for Missouri Digital News out of the Capitol in Jefferson City.

Laura’s involved in an interview session with Indy Car driver Sarah Fisher (right) at the pump promotion today in this picture. Yes, she’s using the golden ZimmComm microphone!

Laura wants to expand her reporting experience by covering events all over the world and we’re happy to be working with her. She’s going to be helping me post regular news items on AgWired and with coverage of certain events. You can feel free to send her your announcements as well as to me.

While we’re working together here in Indy you can find a selection of our photos in an online photo album:
