Join the AWC Bloomington-Normal Chapter during May’s Virtual Speaker Series as we learn tips on how to get a message out over the airwaves. Illinois Farm Bureau’s Rita Frazer will join us to share her insights on podcasting and radio.
Rita grew up on her family’s farm which led her to major in farm broadcasting at Lewis & Clark Community College. She joined RFD Radio Network® in December 2011 after 25 years in farm broadcasting at other radio stations – including 22 years at WSMI in Litchfield. She currently works as Illinois Farm Bureau's Director of Network and Audio Services. In November 2019, Rita assumed office as President of the National Association of Farm Broadcasting. She enjoys covering Illinois agriculture because no matter what type of farmer she interviews, it always seems to come back to family and their commitment to what they do. She helped launch multiple RFD's Podcasts in the fall of 2019.
