Author: Will Robinson

My name is Will Robinson, and I am a science and agricultural journalism major at the University of Missouri. The little patch of heaven that I call home sits out side the small town of Wellsville, Missouri. That’s where I was privileged to grow up on my family’s third-generation swine operation. Over the past summer I had the opportunity to work at Country 96, a radio station based out of Mexico, Missouri. On the weekends, I worked as a radio personality dubbed “The Kid.” As I progress through college, I hope to find an internship at an agricultural based radio corporation, such as the Brownfield radio network so I can further pursue broadcasting as a career. I am very excited to be writing for CAFNR Corner Post this semester.
