As a kid growing up on a Christmas tree farm in northwest, Ohio, Matt Reese could often be found writing in his notebook or telling stories to anyone who would listen. One fateful day on the farm, Ed Johnson, a famously trusted farm broadcaster whose voice could be heard on the radio in any milk house, farm truck or school bus stop in the state, stopped by for a visit. Matt’s experience that day may have jump started his interest in agricultural journalism, because after meeting Mr. Johnson, Matt could think of no more interesting career than to visit with farmers, learn their stories and share them with the world.

In this episode of The Story of Agriculture Podcast, Matt discusses his job as editor of Ohio’s Country Journal, how he finds the incredible story behind each farm he visits and the changing landscape of agricultural journalism.

Other topics discussed include:

  • News writing vs. feature writing
  • Stop the presses moments
  • Writing tips
  • Tips for students
