AgDay TV Show Celebrates 40th Anniversary
USAgNet - 08/17/2022

This week AgDay TV launched its 40th season of serving the nation's farmers and agricultural industry through its award-winning, nationally-syndicated daily newscast. Viewers across the country watch the agriculture news program each morning on 121 affiliate stations and RFD-TV, reaching more than 53 million viewers each year.

AgDay was a pioneer in syndicated television along with programs like "Entertainment Tonight" and "Wheel of Fortune". The program was responsible for many local TV stations adding morning news to their programming lineup. AgDay launched in 1982 by satellite on a handful of local affiliates. Farm Journal acquired the show in 1998, adding national television to its industry-leading print publications.

Clinton Griffiths has served as host of AgDay for the last 12 years, taking over the news desk when long-time host Al Pell retired in 2010.
