Local Media Honored for Contributions to Agriculture - Kentucky Farm Bureau

Local Media Honored for Contributions to Agriculture

Logan County Farm Bureau held a Media Appreciation Event to honor The News-Democrat & Leader and WRUS Radio for contributions to the promotion of agriculture and the farm sector.  Farmers, businesses, and the community benefit greatly from the timely information and news provided by our local newspaper and radio station.  

John Alcott, Farm Bureau Information Chairman, presented gift baskets to both media outlets as thanks for what they do to keep the community informed.  All participants of the Media Appreciation Event have received their COVID-19 immunization vaccinations.

WRUS Radio co-owners Don Neagle and Chris McGennis were recognized for their contributions to agriculture. In addition to news, weather, and marketing information, the radio station broadcasts KYFB’s “Across Kentucky” program weekdays at 6:05 AM.
Chris Cooper and O. J. Stapleton of the News-Democrat & Leader were recognized for their contributions to agriculture. The News-Democrat & Leader prints many ag related news articles as well as Logan County Farm Bureau news and activities. Ms. Cooper was the winner of the 2018 Kentucky Farm Bureau Communication Award.
