WEBS News Director Wins Zen Micro

Chuck Zimmerman

Last month we asked reporters from our database of U. S. radio stations to provide us with feedback about our Talking News Release service. We did this separately to traditional farm broadcasters as I posted earlier. We told them that if they emailed us with their thoughts they’d be entered into a contest to win a digital audio player (Zen Micro). Today we are happy to announce the winner. He’s Kevin Casey, News/Operations Director for WEBS-AM, Calhoun, GA. Congratulations Kevin!

I’ve been to the WTO on more than one occasion to interview various representatives, including former Director General Michael Moore. Trade issues are vitally important to agrimarketing and in fact often determine if you can even market products internationally so we want to keep in touch with these folks!
