Our History

The Voice of Louisiana Agriculture Radio Network has a long history in the state of Louisiana.  Although we've changed our name recently, our network has been in existence for 40 years, beginning as the Louisiana Agri-News Network in 1976.  Louisiana Farm Bureau's Regnal Wallace was the founding farm broadcaster on the network.  He was joined in 1987 by our current Senior Farm Broadcaster, Don Molino.  

We produce a variety of programs that air at the times when farmers need them, with market news, analysis and the latest events in agriculture. In addition to offering informative local news features, we also present national and international news and tell Louisiana producers how actions on the national scene will affect their operations here at home.

Our network has 20 affiliated radio stations in Louisiana, and is operated through a partnership between the Louisiana Radio Network and the Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation.

Founded in 1974, Louisiana Radio Network provides 49 radio stations throughout Louisiana and parts of Mississippi with news, sports and agri-news. LRN also publishes Tiger Rag, “The Bible of LSU Sports,” and presents the annual Louisiana Agriculture Hall of Distinction awards.

The Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation, founded in 1922, is the state’s largest general farm and ranch organization.

The Voice of Louisiana Agriculture Radio Network has had many names over the last 40 years, but our commitment to providing vital information to Louisiana farmers and ranchers has never changed.
