Legendary agribusiness broadcaster Orion Samuelson will retire on December 31. The farewell will come shortly after he celebrates his 60th anniversary at the station.
“Orion has been a uniquely comforting voice in both calm and tumultuous times. Generations of listeners have enjoyed his enduring presence whether or not they knew what a hog or soybean future was,” said Mary Sandberg Boyle, VP/GM.
