ZimmCast 714 – Margy Eckelkamp, Farm Journal

Cindy Zimmerman

ZimmCastIn this episode of the ZimmCast we are featuring an interview with AgWired’s first intern.

Margy Eckelkamp was Margy Fischer and a senior at the University of Missouri when she and Mary Irelan were chosen by Monsanto to be the student bloggers for the 2006 Commodity Classic – the first time it had ever been done and this new media thing was just getting started. Margy immediately showed how capable she was as a multi-media journalist by writing on the spot reports, doing interviews, attending press conferences and taking photos. Farm Journal hired her when she graduated and she’s been there ever since, recently earning another promotion with the ag media group.

We had a nice conversation about where ag media has been and where it might be going in the future. Listen to the ZimmCast here:
