Behind the Scenes
Fifty years of Brownfield Network
It was fifty years ago this week that Brownfield Network went on the air. Incorporated as “Missourinet”, the network fed eleven programs daily to nine radio stations. In a memo to the original affiliates, founder Clyde Lear wrote, “The essence of our existence is to provide solid, high-quality information to the farmers of Missouri. . .” It wasn’t long before radio stations in neighboring states joined on and we became Brownfield Network.
The highlighted stations in this picture are Brownfield affiliates today.
