The Georgia Farm Monitor, Georgia Farm Bureau's weekly television show, was honored with two "Gabby" Merit Awards during the Georgia Association of Broadcasters (GAB) Summer Conference. The Gabbys were presented during an awards event on Aug. 5 during the conference, held on Jekyll Island.

"We are proud to be recognized for what our state board and president allows us to do each week - telling the stories of Georgia's Agriculture producers," said Farm Monitor Executive Producer Andy Lucas. "The Farm Monitor staff is humbled by this award, but the real winners are the farmers whose story we have the opportunity to tell."

The Monitor won the TV Division AA Gabby Merit Award for Best Locally Produced Program (non news or sports) for its 50th Anniversary Special. Web & Video Production Manager Michael Edmondson, Co-Anchor Kenny Burgamy and Lucas put together the show, which originally aired Nov. 12, 2016.

Monitor Senior Producer Ray D'Alessio won Merit Award in the Best Feature Story or Series category for his piece about Comfort Farms, which offers sanctuary and help to military veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. The story first aired April 16, 2016.
