On Friday, February 15, 2019, the University of Nebraska will celebrate its 150th anniversary as the state’s land-grant institution of public education and service through improving the quality of life for Nebraska and beyond. We, at the Rural Radio Network, have a similar mission to serve Nebraskans, and we will celebrate the historic past of our University and learn about its vision to chart a bold new future. We will explore the history of each campus, how the University became a multi-campus system, how each campus has formed its own niche in serving and growing the state of Nebraska, what the future holds, and more.
The program will be hosted by the Rural Radio Network’s Brandon Benitz and Bryce Doeschot.
The Rural Radio Forum is an hour-long program presented quarterly by the Rural Radio Network on issues faced by rural Nebraskans. Podcasts of past Rural Radio Forum programs are available at RuralRadio.com.
