NAFB Changes Name

Chuck Zimmerman

National Association of Farm BroadcastersFarm broadcasters were busy last week at their convention. NAFB, Executive Director, Bill O’Neill just sent out a report that announces the change in the organization’s name. It’s now the National Association of Farm Broadcasting. This was done he says to better represent the “full inclusion of agribusinesses, marketing and communications agencies, farm organizations, and all “allied” providers who are integral to the business and marketplace of farm and rural lifestyle broadcasting.”

Chuck Zimmerman

NAFB ConventionThe NAFB convention is underway here in Kansas City and one of the first main activities is Trade Talk. This is a unique trade show where companies and organizations exhibit with representatives who are available to be interviewed by the attending broadcasters who hopefully will use the interviews in their broadcasts, or in our case, podcasts.
