Here are two of the AgriTalk dudes working at the NAFB convention last month. John Herath, Producer (left) and show host Mike Adams. They now work for a new company. John has a smart phone held up to his ear. Yeah, he’s an agnerd like me.

Yesterday Farm Journal Media announced that they’ve acquired AgriTalk from Vance Publishing.

AgriTalk is the only nationally syndicated long format radio program fully dedicated to agriculture. The acquisition extends Farm Journal Media’s portfolio into radio farm-broadcasting.

On the air since 1994, AgriTalk is a live, one-hour talk show that airs daily on 70 radio stations across the Midwest. Hosted by Mike Adams, the program gives voice to important current issues impacting agriculture and rural America. Adams is a well-recognized and award-winning broadcaster. With the program since 2001, he is a past president of the National Association of Farm Broadcasting (NAFB) and was named Farm Broadcaster of the Year by the organization in 1995.

The company will be integrating AgriTalk into its advertising sales efforts. Management of editorial, distribution and production will be under the company’s broadcast division. AgriTalk’s online presence will be on the company’s website.
