Our Ohio Weekly

The business of news – how it’s generated, how it’s distributed and how it’s consumed has changed exponentially in what seems like a very short time and it keeps changing. What used to be local TV stations and hundreds of local newspapers has morphed into countless television networks and, sadly, very few newspapers covering small town America. That was the topic of conversation at a recent luncheon at the Columbus Metropolitan Club. On this Our Ohio Weekly, hear from industry experts from print and broadcast about the changing landscape of news in a digital world.

00:00 – Alan Miller, Executive Editor for The Columbus Dispatch, Walker Evans, Co-Founder & CEO of Columbus Underground and Denise Eck, News Director for WCMH NBC4 talk about how their industry has been changing as the world becomes fully digital.

23:50 – “To the Beat of Agriculture”, hear from the President of Ohio State’s Collegiate Farm Bureau, Tyler Zimpfer, and why he is passionate about getting involved in ag, and getting others involved, at the college level.

32:20 – Ben Gammie, Ohio Apples Board President and 4th generation owner & grower of Quarry Hill Orchard, talks about the apple industry and how agritourism has faired over the past 18 months.

I'm eternally grateful for the support Ohio Farm Bureau scholarships provided in helping me turn my dreams into reality.

I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Leadership development
With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Growing our Generation
Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
