Source: Meredith Agrimedia news release

Meredith Agrimedia has named Courtney Yuskis as Digital Engagement Director, effective immediately.

In this newly created role, Yuskis will be responsible for overseeing the business objectives and growth of the industry-leading digital properties for Successful Farming, Living the Country Life, Agriculture.com and related brands.

"Courtney's background in digital development and her depth of knowledge in new technologies and platforms are a tremendous asset to our organization," says David Kurns, Editorial Content Director for Meredith Agrimedia. "In addition, her marketing and advertising experience helps make her an ideal fit for this new position."

Meredith Agrimedia has a rich history in digital innovation, starting with the launch of Agriculture.com in May 1995. Yuskis will oversee the continued growth and innovation in digital content to the farming and rural lifestyle audiences - including web, mobile, tablet, native advertising, and a growing digital footprint.

A graduate of Bradley University, Yuskis previously served as a sales executive Meredith Agrimedia. She will remain based in Des Moines at Meredith's headquarter offices.

The Meredith Agrimedia brand was founded in 2013 and builds on Meredith's 110-year heritage of serving the information needs of rural and farm families. It encompasses Successful Farming, Living the Country Life, Agriculture.com and Ageless Iron Almanac to provide marketing solutions by engaging those living on the land through a wide variety of platforms, including publishing, digital, broadcast and mobile.

Successful Farming was Meredith's first magazine in 1902 and now reaches 1.2 million readers each month. Its website, Agriculture.com was established in 1995 as one of the first agricultural websites in America. Living the Country Life was founded in 2002 as a sister publication to Successful Farming. The editors identified a growing community of small farmers and acreage owners across the United States that needed information tailored to their lifestyles. In 2007, Living the Country Life became a standalone multimedia brand, using publishing, radio, digital, and television to reach the rural lifestyle audience.
