FFA Today broadcasts on the RFD-TV network will begin on Jan. 3. This includes new episodes of the FFA Today television show, as well as rebroadcasts of the 80th National FFA Convention which will be titled FFA Today: Convention Extra.
FFA has a time slot on RFD-TV each Thursday from 4 to 5 p.m. EST. FFA Today will air the last Thursday of the month, with the remaining Thursdays dedicated to Convention Extra.
Each episode is designed to share the stories of FFA members, chapters, teachers and alumni. They not only highlight ag careers, programs and service projects that are useful to students and teachers in the classroom, but the stories also educate the viewing audience about the science, business and technology of today’s agricultural education.
This October, nearly 54,000 FFA members, advisors, and guests attended the 80th National FFA Convention held in Indianapolis, Ind. The live broadcast of the convention is among the most watched programs on RFD-TV. With nearly 30 hours of coverage throughout convention week, the broadcasts include interviews, behind-the-scenes stories and special reports. The highlight, however, is the live coverage of each general session.
RFD-TV can be found on Dish Network channel 231, Direct TV channel 379, as well as Mediacom, Comcast, Charter, NRTC, Bresnan and NCTC cable systems, with new cable systems adding the channel monthly. Check local listings for the Thursday show time in your area.
