USAgNet - 01/07/2019

Fresh off the tremendous success of the 91st National FFA Convention, which featured a visit from President Donald Trump and a concert by Garth Brooks, FFA announces a brand-new, student-led national television program to air on RFD-TV. "FFA Today," presented by DISH will premiere on January 7th at 7PM ET. The weekly program will feature students living the FFA motto of "Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, and Living to Serve."

Each week, FFA Today, hosted by FFA officers will showcase their peers' accomplishments in the classroom, in their community, and in agribusiness. Content will be submitted from FFA Chapters from across the country. Additional airings are Tuesday at 9:30PM ET and Sunday at 3:30PM ET.

"RFD-TV is continually seeking to produce new programming that not only serves rural America, but helps reconnect city with country at the same time." stated Patrick Gottsch, Founder & President of RFD-TV. "FFA TODAY is such an opportunity. There is so much "good" going on at FFA all over the country, that a weekly news program devoted just to FFA is easily justified. We look forward to expanding RFD-TV's relationship and support of the National FFA Organization."

"We are thrilled that RFD-TV will continue telling the story of agricultural education and FFA through this new television program," said Mark Poeschl, CEO of the National FFA Organization and National FFA Foundation. "FFA Today is a tangible way to reach a broad audience featuring the activities of our members and reflecting what FFA and agricultural education are doing to provide the next generation of leaders that will change the world. We are confident that RFD-TV's viewers will find the content interesting, educational and inspiring."

The new television program complements FFA Today that is broadcast on RURAL RADIO on SiriusXM Channel 147 on Saturdays at 7:30 AM ET and 11:00 AM ET as well as 6:30 PM on Sundays.
