DUANE TOEWS – FARM DIRECTOR
PHONE: 785-632-5661 EXT. 242
Duane is currently the Farm Director for KFRM 550 AM radio. His live broadcast shift is from 7:00 am to 10:00 am, an 8-minute segment for the noon news and a number of other programs that air during the day. Duane also does the 11:40 Market Update, Ag News, and Listeners Classified on the sister station KCLY.
Prior to joining the broadcast world in August, 2001, he was a county extension agent for nine years. Why the switch? He’s claiming it was a mid-life crisis and it happened early enough that he may have another. The jobs are really very similar in terms of airing news and information to producers, hopefully improving their bottom line. His wife just says he likes to talk a lot so it’s a natural fit.
Angie and Duane have three children and enjoy traveling to fairs. Family vacations tend to coincide with livestock shows. They have a lot of fun showing sheep, goats, hogs and chickens.
