It was fifty years ago this week that Brownfield Network went on the air. Incorporated as “Missourinet”, the network fed eleven programs daily to nine radio stations. In a memo to the original affiliates, founder Clyde Lear wrote, “The essence of our existence is to provide solid, high-quality information to the farmers of Missouri. . .” It wasn’t long before radio stations in neighboring states joined on and we became Brownfield Network.
The highlighted stations in this picture are Brownfield affiliates today.
