Liz Koehler

Hola! My name is Liz Koehler and I am going to be a senior this year majoring in Agricultural Communications with a broadcast focus and minoring in Environmental Economics and Policy. This summer I am interning at the Illinois Farm Bureau with RFD Radio Network in Bloomington, Ill. There, I learned the ins and outs of the radio business. I am on-air almost everyday and do a special legislative update each week. I also am working to redesign their FarmWeekNow.com website, beta testing their new app and have begun the @FarmWeekNow Twitter account. I’ve been able to make great contacts throughout the industry and have loved every second of it. I spend about half of my time in the field getting interviews and adventuring the state. I spend a lot of my spare time on the weekends visiting friends and family. My oldest brother, Ethan, just graduated from U of I and moved to Colorado, so we went on vacation there to visit him. It was so beautiful there as we enjoyed hiking, board games, some stupid human tricks from my youngest brother, a Cub’s game and even doing some work interviewing farmers about their wheat crops. This summer has flown by but I can’t wait to get back and see everyone! Here’s to tailgate season arriving soon!
