[Nashville, TN] – President Trump will address the National FFA Convention on Saturday, October 27.  RFD-TV, The Cowboy Channel, and Rural Radio on SiriusXM Channel 147 will carry this historic speech live as part of our regular coverage of the 9th General FFA Session from Indianapolis, with coverage beginning at 1 PM ET.  President Trump will be the first President to speak to the National FFA Convention in person since President George H. W. Bush addressed the delegates in 1991.

In addition to the Presidential remarks, fans of FFA will see expanded coverage in 2018.  Not only will RFD-TV cover all 30 hours in its entirety as it has in years past, but viewers can now watch the events on The Cowboy Channel and listen on Rural Radio on SiriusXM Channel 147.  This expanded carriage means the National FFA Convention will be available to 126,000,000 subscribers in the United States and Canada.
The National FFA Convention, held annually by FFA, one of the world’s leading youth leadership organizations, is expected to attract 69,000 members to Indianapolis for a week-long celebration where they will live their motto:  Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, and Living to Serve.  The nearly 600,000 members who cannot make the event will be able to follow the excitement live on television or radio.
