Georgia Farm Monitor gets new look

The Georgia Farm Monitor, which has aired continuously since 1966, is broadcasting from a new set beginning with the Jan. 12 show. The new venue has a farmhouse feel with windows providing views of fields, prominent display of the new Farm Monitor logo and a rustic table for anchors Ray D’Alessio and Kenny Burgamy.

Georgia Farm Bureau (GFB) Information/Public Relations Director Andy Lucas said the modified look won’t change the program’s approach to showcasing Georgia agriculture.

“For our organization and for the members we serve and our audience, we felt it was important to maintain the Farm Monitor,” Lucas said. “The fresh look you see is a slight modification from where we’ve been. We’re going to continue to tell those stories that we tell each and every week.”
