Michigan Farmers Depend on Local Radio
Michigan farmers represent one of the most loyal radio segments of the population. Research indicates that 72% of farmers listen to radio for agricultural information at least 3 days per week; 86% listen at least 4 days per week; and 61% listen 5 days per week. A 2018 telephone survey of top Michigan farmers revealed that 87% had listened to radio that day. Farmer radio listening is consistent across ag demographics, with younger farmers listening even more than older producers.
Radio Fits Farming Lifestyle
Today’s farmer is mobile farming thousands of acres which often span multiple counties. They spend their days in the truck, the tractor, or the workshop. Local radio is their link to the markets, weather, and timely farm news. Farmers seek out stations that air this information. Michigan Ag Today programs are filled with this information and are also locally relevant.
