Agri-Pulse Communications, Inc. is launching its national news show, Agri-Pulse Newsmakers, on RFD-TV, Rural America’s Most Important Network. The show premiers on Saturday, Jan. 7, 2023, at 11 a.m. ET.

“Our editorial team has demonstrated a strong ability to bring people together for high-level discussions that can both inform and engage,” said Agri-Pulse Founder and Editor Sara Wyant. “We have had great success with Agri-Pulse Newsmakers since our launch in February and this is the next step in bringing this unique policy programming to an even larger audience with RFD-TV.”

The new television show features members of Congress, federal and state officials, ag and food leaders, farmers and roundtable panelists for debates and discussions. These issues will be extremely important with the farm bill being debated in a new Congress, along with many other critical ag and food policy issues.
