State's longest-running TV news program gets new time slots

logo175An iconic local television news program that is still airing after five decades is moving to a new time.

Farmweek, the state’s oldest and only locally produced agricultural television news show, has moved to Saturdays at 6 p.m. and Mondays at 6 a.m. on Mississippi Public Broadcasting. The show also can be seen on the nationwide satellite and cable TV network RFD-TV at 3 a.m. CST, or online at msucares.com/news/farmweek/index.html.

The Mississippi State University Extension Service and the MSU Office of Agricultural Communications have produced Farmweek since Oct. 3, 1977. The show began its 37th season this month. More than 1,800 weekly productions have been broadcast, and the show is aired nationwide and statewide 52 weeks per year.
