“Unlike many in NAFB, I had no idea farm broadcasting was a career possibility when I was growing up,” said Ashley Davenport (Michigan Ag Today, Portage, Michigan). 

On June 27, WRDN AM-FM (Durand, Wisconsin) aired the Dunn Energy Cooperative annual meeting. 

Sabrina Halvorson (Fargo, North Dakota) is adding another title to her business card. In addition to digital director for the American Ag Network, she is now also the news director for the Dakota News Network.

Scott Bachmeier (KFYR/KBMR, Rhame, North Dakota) grew up on a farm/ranch in south central North Dakota near the small town of Raleigh. His family operation consisted of dairy, ranching, small grains, and forage. After high-school graduation, Bachmeier continued his education in Minot and found a part-time job at KCJB-AM radio, helping with every aspect of radio he could learn.

For this edition of “Where Are They Now?,” I caught up with Randy Rasmussen, another former farm broadcaster who now is a member of the clergy. Randy shares some of his NAFB memories and stories.
