The 30-minute show airs Saturday mornings on RURAL RADIO, Channel 80.
In the cab of a truck or stuck in city traffic, cattle producers everywhere have a chance to stay connected with their agricultural interests with the American Angus Association®’s newly launched radio program, Angus Talk.
A 30-minute SiriusXM Satellite Radio program, Angus Talk airs 11 a.m. EST (10 a.m. CST) every Saturday morning exclusively on RURAL RADIO, Channel 80. The show is hosted by Doug Medlock, the voice of I Am Angus®, and features timely discussion and commentary on topics of importance to cattle producers.
“Talk radio remains one of the most valuable sources of information for many in agriculture,” says Eric Grant, Association director of communications and public relations. “The Angus Talk format will allow us to explore topics of interest to cattle producers in an in-depth and entertaining way.”
RURAL RADIO on SiriusXM, Channel 80 is the first 24/7 international radio channel devoted to serving agribusiness and the western lifestyle. The channel launched in July with its broadcast operations based in Nashville, Tenn. In addition to Angus Talk, the station’s program schedule provides a wide variety of original productions focused on agriculture, equine sports and living the country life.
“We’re very excited to be on RURAL RADIO, Channel 80 because it provides us with a unique communications platform to reach a wide audience about the Angus breed and what it offers rural Americans,” Grant says.
Listeners can tune in to RURAL RADIO, Channel 80 at 11 a.m. EST every Saturday to catch the show.
