“What a tremendous honor it was for me to receive the 2014 Farm Broadcaster of the Year Award,” Ken Anderson (Brownfield Network, Lincoln, NE) said after the November convention in Kansas City. “I attended my first NAFB Convention in 1977, at the ripe old age of 22, and have watched many great farm broadcasters receive this prestigious award over the years.”

As I drove home Sunday after convention, a song kept playing over and over in my head, You've Got a Friend In Me. I overheard a student conversation about how we all work so well together, sharing audio and equipment. One student said you wouldn't see that in any other media group, they are right. What we do as Farm Broadcasters is so unique, yet we are willing to go the extra mile to help out someone who will air the same story we just worked on.
