A sad day for the North Country!!
STATEMENT FROM GOVERNOR DAVID A. PATERSON ON FINAL
RADIO BROADCAST OF JEFFERSON COUNTY'S HOME GROWN SHOW
"For the past seven years, residents in the North Country have been both educated and entertained by Jefferson County's weekly agricultural radio show – The Home Grown Show on AM 1240 WATN. Unfortunately for those faithful listeners, the show has ended broadcasting today following the station's announcement of plans to change formats.
"The Home Grown Show provided a valuable service to the agricultural industry in Upstate New York by bringing the industry together on issues of interest, while educating consumers on the importance of agriculture to the New York State economy. The light-hearted humor and insightful wisdom of radio morning host Mike White and Jefferson County Agricultural Coordinator Jay Matteson is sure to be missed.
"On behalf of all residents of the North Country, I bid farewell to The Home Grown Show and offer thanks to the entire staff for years of dedication to the agricultural industry of the North Country."
