Brownfield Welcomes The Ag Information Network of the US

Brownfield FootprintWhoa. Brownfield has just added a major addition to its portfolio of farm radio news networks. When I spent some years as the General Manager, then Farm Director, of the Brownfield Network I always believed in the potential of how this business could grow, even during the trying times of radio industry consolidation. I will never forget the people I worked with and met traveling into new states to grow the initial network. I also will never forget having to get out of my warm car to go to a freezing phone booth to connect my recorder with alligator clips to send audio back to the studios. Enough of that, although I have many, many more memories of those times.

So here’s the news:

Brownfield welcomes The Ag Information Network of the US to the suite of agriculture networks it represents for national sales. This partnership expands the marketing reach available for advertising partners to be nearly national in scope. Along with Brownfield’s expansive coverage of corn and soybean acres, this partnership offers expanded reach for cotton, rice and specialty crops like almonds and apples.

“This new partnership extends our national AG footprint and compliments the broad array of states and opportunities we can provide our clients so they can reach the farmers they need and want,” explains John Baker, Senior Vice President & General Manager of Brownfield.

With more than 170 affiliate radio stations, The Ag Information Network has been the dominate farm news network in the West for 36 years. Recent expansion into the Southeast has given them the advantage of being the number one specialty crop network from coast to coast.

In addition to The Ag Information Network of the US, Brownfield represents Dayweather, Texas State Ag Network, Kansas Network, Your Ag Network (SD), stations in AR, LA, MS, KY and TN as well as the more than 530 affiliate radio stations that are part of Brownfield Ag News.
