Wallaces Farmer, Nebraska Farmer welcome new leaders

Around Farm Progress Podcast talks with two new editors Tyler Harris, Wallaces Farmer, and Curt Arens, Nebraska Farmer about what they see ahead

We're welcoming new leadership to Farm Progress as new editors take the helm at Wallaces Farmer and Nebraska Farmer. But neither Tyler Harris, nor Curt Arens, are new to the Farm Progress team. They're shifting roles to fill leadership opportunities for the company. And in the latest episode of Around Farm Progress, they share some history and what they see for the future.

Long-time editor and writer for Wallaces Farmer – Rod Swoboda – is retiring at year end. Tyler Harris, former editor of Nebraska Farmer, is moving east to take on the challenges of covering Iowa Agriculture. We talked with Tyler about this role, but also about the fact that Wallaces is where he started.

Curt Arens is taking over for Tyler at Nebraska Farmer. Since 2010, Curt has been working on the Nebraska Farmer staff with Tyler, now he's the new boss. We chat with Curt about his new role, and his work on the brand with the big red N.
