Farm Credit and the widely-syndicated radio program “On the Farm” Radio have partnered in a three-year agreement featuring Studio Naming Rights. Every program produced by OTF Radio during this period will be branded as “produced in the Farm Credit Studios.”
Farm Credit was created in 1916 and is now the largest single provider of agricultural credit in the United States. The Farm Credit System is a national network of lending institutions that collectively provide a wide range of financial and lending services to rural America. Farm Credit institutions are cooperatives, capitalized largely through investments made by farmers, ranchers and the rural businesses that borrow from them. Farm Credit helps maintain and improve the quality of life in rural America and on the farm through its constant commitment to competitive lending and expert financial services.
OTF Radio is hosted by Jeff Ishee and Jesse Martin. The daily radio program highlights evolving issues of concern to farmers, rural communities and the general public. OTF Radio produces and distributes more than 1,600 radio programs each year for more than fifty radio stations in seven states including Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Each radio broadcast will be tagged or introduced with the line “From the Farm Credit Studios . . .”. The web site at www.onthefarmradio.com will also feature this unique branding. The site offers current news, weather, and other information concerning rural and agricultural interests.
Radio programs can be heard throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region. Broadcast times are determined by local stations.
“We are pleased to partner with Farm Credit in this agreement. Farm Credit has been a sponsor of our program since the day we first went on the air in 2002. While dedicated to our program, the fine people at Farm Credit are even more focused on serving farmers and other rural interests. We are honored to have our radio broadcast originate from the Farm Credit Studios.” Jeff Ishee
“Farm Credit is thrilled to be partnering with the team at On the Farm Radio as we bring daily broadcasts to you from the ‘Farm Credit studio.’ This daily news program is truly committed to delivering up-to-date ag industry news and farm features to everyone in the rural communities we serve. I believe this partnership will enrich the lives of all listeners as the team at OTF strives to deliver the most up-to-date news and events impacting farmers and our industry. Farm Credit has been a sponsor of OTF for over 14 years and we look forward to strengthening our already remarkable relationship with OTF radio as well as serving the needs of YOU, our listeners.” Peery Heldreth, CEO, Farm Credit of the Virginias
