Hoosier Radio Station Makes Major Commitment to Agriculture

SHARE

Radio station WHZR-103.7FM (Hoosier Country) has made a major programming commitment to agriculture. Beginning Monday June 26, 2017, the Cass County station significantly increased the number of agricultural programs being aired each day.  From 6am to 6pm the station will air hourly programs from Hoosier Ag Today. The programs, consisting of news, market, and weather, are all of extreme interest to Indiana farmers. In addition, the station is airing a series of feature programs produced by area FFA students called “The Farming Underground.”

“It is truly inspiring to see a station make this kind of commitment to serve the agricultural community in their service area,“ said Gary Truitt, President of Hoosier Ag Today. “Hoosier Ag Today is proud to support WHZR with timely and relevant programming.”  The station serves a major agricultural production area of Indiana, including Cass, Carrol, Tippecanoe, White, Fulton, Miami, and Pulaski Counties. WHZR is owned by Mid-America Radio group that also owns WSAL-AM in Logansport, WCBK-FM in Martinsville, and WMYJ-AM in Martinsville, all of which also air Hoosier Ag Today programs.

“The Radio medium has a responsibility to deliver content that is relevant to the community and region they serve,” said Allen James, General Manager of WHZR. “This region of Indiana is driven by agriculture.  Hoosier Country 103.7 (WHZR) chooses to provide an interactive platform for farming that aims to reflect the challenges and activities taking place in our world of agriculture.”
