Jared White, the local farm broadcaster for NEWSTALK WTIM AM-FM Taylorville and WHOW AM-FM Clinton, won an award earlier this month at the annual meeting of the National Association of Farm Broadcasting in Kansas City.
White, who has been a member of N-A-F-B since 2011, was given an award for 5 years of membership in the organization.
White produces 2 15-minute morning and noon farm shows each weekday for NEWSTALK WTIM and WHOW. He travels extensively over some 12 counties in Central Illinois, covering local agriculture, and interviews over 200 farmers and agri-business leaders each year about current farm issues.
White is also station manager at WHOW and WEZC in Clinton.
