About Western Ag Network

The Western Ag Network proudly delivers the latest Ag news and markets to over 111 radio stations in Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming.

It’s home to NAFB award-winning radio and television farm broadcasters-Russell Nemetz, Lane Nordlund, Paul Humphrey and Rachel Gabel.

The farm broadcasters travel extensively across the region and nation concentrating on personal contact with producers and agribusiness professionals providing unmatched visibility credibility and high-quality Ag programming! 

The Western Ag Network has deep roots in Agriculture and Rural America.

That’s because it used to be the Evan Slack Network founded in 1985 by NAFB hall-of-fame farm broadcaster Evan Slack.

Once he got his pilot’s license in 1967, he literally took off and flew the friendly skies of this country bringing his own brand of personal charm to the airwaves via the airways.

The freedom of flight helped Evan become an agricultural radio network pioneer in the west, working to establish network programming specifically targeted for the farmers and ranchers of this region in the early 1970s.

Evan’s love of flying allowed him to cover the entire western farm and ranch territory and he quickly became a well-loved radio personality with the slogan “On the Air and In the Air.”

The legendary Evan Slack passed away in 2020 at the age of 86. But his legacy continues on with the Western Ag Network and its vast coverage area that includes the original Evan Slack Network footprint.
