Stephan Steps Up For American Farmers

He's not just a syndicated radio talk show host, he's a dairy farmer, too, which is why, after taking part in the FAIR "Hold Their Feet To The Fire" radio row in WASHINGTON WEDNESDAY (9/16), DOUG STEPHAN dropped by the offices of Sens. BERNIE SANDERS (I-VT) and PATRICK LEAHY (D-VT) to voice his support for a bill to back dairy farmers.
STEPHAN, host of "DOUG STEPHAN'S GOOD DAY" and "TALK RADIO COUNTDOWN" who broadcasts from his farm in MASSACHUSETTS, said, "In addition to my work as a broadcaster, I am also a dairy farmer, something I am equally passionate about. Because of my deep understanding of the plight of the family farmer in AMERICA, I am eager to do what I can to help the cause and bring their story to the attention of all Americans. The economy is one of the major issues on everyone's mind these days. While talk radio has spent much time focusing on WALL STREET, it is equally important to use our pulpit to focus attention to family farms, which are the backbone of the country's economy and rural communities. These farmers are only two percent of the population, but they supply us with most of our food. I am challenging my talk radio colleagues to pay more attention to this problem."
