Madi Moore is a senior pursuing a degree in media and communication at Delaware Valley College (DelVal) in Doylestown, PA. She plans to graduate in May 2015.  Moore has been writing and reporting for newspapers since high school. She was a published staff writer for the Bucks County newspaper, The Intelligencer, and is currently a content producer for the online news publication Moore has been the marketing and communications intern at DelVal for three years. She grew up in Telford, PA a small town next to predominately farmland. Moore says, “I know that it is important to have an understanding of where your food comes from, as well as an understanding of agriculture as a whole.” She believes broadcasting can be used as a tool to communicate to the world these understandings. 

Moore interviews Dr. Temple Grandin, 
animal behavior consultant to the
livestock industry.

Upon graduation, Moore wants to work for a news publication and loves that reporting gives her a chance to travel and meet new people every day. She looks forward to learning about the broadcasting industry and increasing her knowledge in the field.

Dave looks forward to having Madi join him for broadcast coverage of the Pennsylvania Ag Progress Day on August 13. One of the interviews on her agenda is Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett. She will be assisting with audio editing and computer transfer of 8-12 stories per day that will be carried by the Keystone Radio Network. Dave says the network serves 600,000 listeners.
