Media Tent Man

Chuck Zimmerman

Gene HemphillThe media tent at Farm Progress Show is sponsored by New Holland and the media tent man is Gene Hemphill.

Gene just got in so I got him to talk about what he does here after he tested out the microphone on the press conference podium. Gene says that this will be his 19th media room sponsorhip for Farm Progress Show but that he actually did a media room sponsorship for a show here at Amana Colonies the year before. You’ll have to listen to the interview to hear him talk about the first years when they put typewriters out with reams of paper.

Monsanto Show Staff Meeting

Monsanto Staff MeetingI think Kelcy and I are going to have our hands full covering all the activities planned by Monsanto, our sponsor.

They’ve got a large exhibit and we’re going to learn more about the new things they have to offer over the next several days, along with coverage of as much of the show as we can.
