Rita grew up on her family’s farm which led her to major in farm broadcasting at Lewis & Clark Community College. She came to RFD Radio Network® in December 2011 after 25 years in farm broadcasting at other radio stations – including 22 years at WSMI in Litchfield. She enjoys covering Illinois agriculture because no matter what type of farmer she interviews, it always seems to come back to family and their commitment to what they do.
