Here are some comments from affiliates about my work (NOTE: References to The Farm Journal Report pertain to the program before the name was changed to Farm to Fork)...
"It's a great little feature to enhance your
farm programming. We carry it twice a day on both our AM and FM stations and get
great feedback on it."
Dan Keating, General Manager, KMAV-FM/KMSR-AM, Mayville, ND
David Rockwell, Midday DJ/News Director, WHGL-FM, Troy, PA

"What I hear from our listeners most about The
Farm Journal Report is that it grabs the attention of everyone, not just
farmers. A lot of ag shows focus on just farming. FJR is about the lifestyle and
what the future holds not just locally but around the world. From buffalo to
bees and gardens without soil, The Farm Journal Report holds your attention."
Kevin Grindstaff, Program Director, WDKR/WXFM, Maroa/Mt. Zion/Decatur, IL
"We love airing TFJR on AM 1100 WZFG in Fargo, ND
and AM 1090 KTGO in Tioga, ND because it provides news, insight and education
for farmers, ranchers and everyone else in our listening areas. The program is
short, so the content is specific and concise. Darrell is wonderful at
interviewing his guests and pulling the best information to share on the report.
The interviews are also topical for each season, which is great. This is also
terrific filler audio for traffic. When station logs are light, or we need to
fill longer break times in the early mornings or overnight, we like to bonus
TFJR instead of airing the same old PSA's or barter filler. We're grateful to
have this type of programming on our station for the agriculture
information/education and even entertainment that it provides. As far as gaining
additional affiliates. If we operate on a market exclusivity agreement, I'm
happy to waive that for the Fargo-Moorhead area so you can ask other stations in
and around the metro to carry TFJR. Keep up the great work, we love it!"
Dustin Moore, Operations Manager, Bakken Beacon Media
"The Farm Journal Report is an integral part of
our morning ag block on Finger Lakes News Radio in upstate New York. The Farm
Journal Report combines news, profiles of today's farming superstars and
superstars-to-be and information farmers might be too busy to chase down on
their own. The program is well-produced, so our stations sound good and it's
sponsored locally, which makes me look good. It's easy to get, just download a
single zip file once a week. If you want to add ag programming or improve the ag
programming you have, take a look at the Farm Journal Report."
Ted Baker, Program Director, Finger Lakes News Radio, Geneva, NY
"Our relationship with Darrell Anderson covers more than 25 years. His daily farm
program has been a part of our morning drive show since the early 1990's.
Darrell's knowledge of the farm and agricultural community comes through in each
broadcast. Our station is in a heavy agricultural community and Darrell's
program not only fits in very well with our overall farm programming, it is also
a great way to attract those local and regional ag dollars."
Bill Rice, Program Director, WFIN, Findlay, OH
"The Farm Journal Report is a great addition to our lineup of ag
programming here at KLQP-FM. We have been airing Darrell's show for a long time
and have always been very pleased with the variety of timely ag topics that are
covered. If you're not running it...you should be!"
Maynard Meyer, GM, KLQP-FM, Madison, MN
"We like the variety of topics presented in the
Farm Journal report."
Larry Masco, Program Director, KMTI-AM, Manti, UT
"I continue to enjoy the content
and local aspects of the show."
Bill Eckersen, Program Director, KMRS-AM, Morris, MN
"Nice variety of topics and features.
Good mix geographically. Very professional and well-produced."
Bruce Dierking, General Manager, KNDY-AM/FM, Marysville, KS
"Excellent program. Good variety.
Pertinent to our audience."
Dan Baddorf, Program Director, KTCH-AM/FM, Wayne, NE
"Very informative. The program
is a good mix with the rest of our farm programming."
Lila Brossart, Owner, KZZJ-AM, Rugby, ND
"Strong production - timely subject
material with excellent variety."
Ronald Fruit, General Manager, WRCO-AM/FM, Richland Center, WI
shows are professionally produced and contain a wonderful variety of topics,
providing something for everyone, from the nonfarmer to the hobbyist farmer to
the mega farm."
Jayneece Bostwick, Program Director, WVIL-FM, Virginia, IL and WKXQ-FM, Rushville, IL
