The way we consume media is changing. You could be listening to music or shows in your car or tooling around in your shop or garage as it airs on your local radio station or you might be listening to the podcast version on your mobile device or even a smart speaker. This goes for just about any program being produced these days for any segment of our society...including agriculture. On this Our Ohio Weekly, Ty Higgins visits with ag media mogul, Rob Sharkey, who is changing the way farmers and those involved in agriculture get their entertainment and information.
