FARM JOURNAL MEDIA HIRES NEW VP/GEN'L MANAGER FOR ITS RADIO BUSINESS
Source: Farm Journal Media news release

Farm Journal Media today announced Mark DePrez as its new Vice President and General Manager for its radio business. DePrez will be responsible for the Farm Journal radio portfolio, which now includes "AgriTalk" with Mike Adams and "American Countryside" with Andrew McCrea. A new one-hour talk show focused on the commodity markets and hosted by Chip Flory is slated for launch in early March.

"We are thrilled to have Mark join our team," says Brian Conrady, Senior Vice President of Farm Journal Broadcast. "Radio has quickly become an important part of Farm Journal's integrated go-to-market media strategy, and Mark has the experience, the talent and the tenacity to further spur this growth."

Prior to joining Farm Journal Media, DePrez was the long-time general manager of powerhouse WOWO Radio in Fort Wayne, Ind. He most recently served in a COO role for Federated Media, a privately held multimedia company, which includes 17 radio stations, a newspaper and an outdoor advertising company in Indiana, Michigan and Oregon.

Throughout his broadcasting career, DePrez has been actively involved in the National Association of Farm Broadcasters. A member since 1995, he served two terms on the NAFB's Board of Directors and chaired the Marketing Advisory Committee.

"It's fascinating to see the role radio plays as part of an integrated marketing solution in agriculture," says DePrez. "I've had the opportunity to learn a lot about Farm Journal's cross-platform content and how radio can fit. I'm excited to be part of this expanding radio business."
