Adams made the announcement during his Adams on Agriculture broadcast last Friday. “As I mentioned on the air today, I’ll be retiring on December 23, wrapping up a nearly 48 year career on the air,” Adams tweeted after the show. “I can never say thank you enough to everyone who has helped and supported me over the years. I appreciate it more than you know.”
Adams is past president of the National Association of Farm Broadcasting and recipient of the national Farm Broadcaster of the Year award, among many other accolades in his career.

Mike is a 10+ year broadcast veteran, hosting “Market to Market” on Public Television, producing the Ag News Daily podcast and most recently on This Week in Agribusiness with Max Armstrong.
