FARM JOURNAL MEDIA has named MARK DEPREZ VP/GM for its radio business. Formerly GM for WOWO/FORT WAYNE, IN, 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,” FARM JOURNAL BROADCAST SVP BRIAN CONRADY said. “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.”
“It’s fascinating to see the role radio plays as part of an integrated marketing solution in
agriculture,” DEPREZ said. “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.”
