(Picture Butte, AB) May 7, 2018 – RealAgriculture is excited to announce the signing of a new three-year broadcast agreement for RealAg Radio on SiriusXM Rural Radio Channel 147.
Launched in the fall of 2016, RealAg Radio is Canada’s only daily national agricultural radio program. Hosted by Shaun Haney, along with Kelvin Heppner, the show features interviews and discussions covering current events, markets, agronomy, and farm management — issues impacting broadacre farmers, livestock producers, and North American agriculture as a whole.
The new deal demonstrates a commitment to listeners and advertisers to continue to provide high-quality and engaging agricultural information and content for farmers from coast-to-coast across North America.
The 60-minute show airs every weekday afternoon at 4 pm eastern, as part of a block of North America’s best agriculture radio programs, including Ag PhD Radio, AgriTalk, and Market Day Report. A replay of RealAg Radio can also be heard on Rural Radio every weekday morning at 7 am eastern. The podcast version of the show can be found on RealAgriculture.com and in iTunes and other podcast apps.
With 2.7 million Canadian subscribers, research shows SiriusXM Canada listeners tune in ten hours a week while only spending three hours a week listening to conventional radio. In a recent survey of RealAgriculture.com subscribers, 54 percent of farmers say they listen regularly and 47 percent of our listeners farm 2,500 acres or more.
SiriusXM satellite radio is available in factory-installed car radios and portable radios in tractors, combines, sprayers, cars, trucks, boats, and consumer products for homes. In addition, listeners can tune in via web-streaming and on-demand apps (smartphones and tablets).
2018 also marks the 10th anniversary of RealAgriculture, which was founded by Shaun Haney, a seed farmer from Alberta, Canada.
