Shannon Gray (AlphaMedia USA, Amarillo, Texas) returns to KGNC-AM as the agribusiness news director, bringing previous knowledge and experience to the AlphaMedia team.

Bob Brunker (J.L. Farmakis, Inc.; NAFB Management and Sales Council member) is receiving the 2019 National Agri–Marketing Association (NAMA) Professional Development Award (PDA) of Excellence at this year’s NAMA Fall Conference, October 7-9, in St. Louis, Missouri. 

This organization has been an integral part of my personal professional development since my first days as a student member. I want to do everything I can to make sure NAFB can play that same role for future generations of farm broadcasters and the agricultural industry as a whole.

With a varied background that continued to circle around agriculture, a life-long passion for farmers and ranchers and the commitment to serve them every day on the air, I bring to the table background, experience, dedication, and the willingness to listen.
