During a break in the inaugural program, Host Ward Scott chats with guests, Alachua County Farm Bureau President Winston Rushing and Michael Rogalsky, director of Field Services, Florida Farm Bureau Federation.

“This is the only locally produced talk radio program in Florida that I am aware of that is sponsored by a county Farm Bureau and focuses on our local agriculture and rural citizens,” said Alachua County Farm Bureau President Winston rushing. “Each program will focus on some aspect of agriculture or some important topic or issue faced by agricultural producers and rural residents.”

Rushing noted the Hank-FM 101.7 signal reaches many other counties that have active county Farm Bureaus. “We welcome calls from folks in those counties. This program is intended to be a service to everyone in the listening area.

The Farm Bureau’s mission is to to increase the net income of farmers and ranchers, and to improve the quality of rural life.

“We’re inviting listeners to call in to the show or text their questions and comments–in order to get some good dialogue going on about rural issues,” Rushing said. “We are seeking a variety of viewpoints.”
