Growth Energy & Farmers For Free Trade Featured on Back To Back Rural Town Halls on RFD-TV
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September, 6, 2018
Nashville, TN – The popular “live”, interactive call-in format of RFD-TV’s RURAL TOWN HALL will be utilized for two very special one-hour prime-time programs designed to mobilize farmers politically while educating the general public on these important agricultural issues.
On Thursday evening, September 6, at 10pm (eastern), executives of Growth Energy will detail the current status for expanding the E15 effort with President Trump. Then on Monday, September 10, at 8pm (eastern) representatives of Farmers For Free Trade will be in RFD-TV’s Nashville studios to answer questions about their current ad campaign to raise the awareness of the effects that the tariffs are having on America’s farmers & ranchers. Both programs will be broadcast “live” to over 52 million cable/satellite homes on RFD-TV, with several repeats scheduled over the next week.
“This is exactly the types of issues that RURAL TOWN HALL was designed to address,” stated Patrick Gottsch, Founder & President of Rural Media Group, Inc. “Issues that struggle for attention on urban based media, yet so important to the economy in rural America”.
Both programs will contain direct comments on these subjects made by President Trump in RFD-TV’s exclusive interview produced at the White House this past week.
