(Lethbridge, AB) April 6, 2021 – RealAgriculture is excited to announce the signing of a second 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, the show features interviews and discussions covering current events, policy and regulatory topics, market moves, agronomy, and farm management — issues impacting farmers, livestock producers, and North American agriculture as a whole.
“It has been an extreme pleasure being apart of the Rural Radio 147 family since 2016 and we look forward to the opportunity to grow our presence on SiriusXM over the next three years,” says RealAgriculture founder Shaun Haney.
RealAg Radio is a one-hour show airing every weekday afternoon at 4:30 pm Eastern, as part of a block of North America’s best agriculture radio programs, including Ag PhD Radio, AgriTalk, Sharkfarmer Radio 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/radio, the Sirius XM app, in iTunes and other podcast apps.
“We’re excited to continue our relationship with Shaun Haney and the RealAg Radio team. The RealAg Radio program provides consistent insight into the agriculture industry, from both a Canadian and U.S. perspective, offering a unique program for the loyal listeners of Rural Radio 147 SXM. The farmers and ranchers across North America will be delighted to hear that RealAg Radio will continue to be a part of their daily routine for years to come,” says Rick Patton, executive vice president of agriculture sales and marketing of RFD-TV, the Cowboy Channel, and Rural Radio 147.
