ZimmCast 728 – Global Center for AgComm


ZimmCastHello and welcome to the ZimmCast.

I started in a career of agricultural communications back in 1983 and in all these years it is amazing how much has changed. Technology has played a major role and that includes the ability today to easily communicate about agriculture everywhere in the world. Having said this I’m going to have a conversation with Dr. Owen Roberts, College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences; University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is a good friend and we first met being involved at events of the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists.

He is also involved with a new initiative at the University of Illinois’s College of Agriculture. And that’s the subject of this podcast episode. Plans have been made for a global center for food and agricultural communications and it is named after another good friend, Dr. James Evans – The James F. Evans Global Center for Food and Agricultural Communications.

If you would like to contribute to this initiative you can do so online here.
