MADISON — Mid-West Family Broadcasting has gained a new voice for Wisconsin agriculture. Jenna Lee Crayton has been named the new Assistant Farm Director for the Wisconsin Farm Report Radio Network. Jenna Lee will be working alongside the “Fabulous Farm Babe”, Pam Jahnke to keep the public informed on Wisconsin agriculture from field to fork.
Jahnke said, “I’m excited to have Jenna as our new assistant! Her passion for Wisconsin agriculture is obvious, and I’m looking forward to our audience meeting her.”
Jenna Lee was raised on her family’s dairy and crop farm in Oak Creek, WI. Along with cattle, her family also owns a flock of commercial-type show lambs. She was a very active member of the Racine County 4-H program. She served as a junior leader, 4-H ambassador, and the Tucker 4-H club sheep leader. Along with 4-H Jenna Lee was also the 2010 Racine County Farm Bureau Ambassador, 2013 Racine County Fairest of the Fair, and a Top 6 candidate for the 70th Alice in Dairyland position.
Jenna Lee’s passion for agriculture led her to attend the University of Wisconsin Stevens-Point, where in 2015 she graduated with a bachelor of arts in communication with a double emphasis in interpersonal organizations and public relations, while minoring in business administration. She then continued her education at Texas Tech University where in May of 2017 she obtained her Masters of Science in Agriculture Communications.
“Growing up in the urbanized area of Milwaukee County showed me at a young age just how removed a large portion of the population is from the agriculture industry. I took it upon myself to teach those around me about the importance of agriculture and those who work in it. I am so honored and excited to have this opportunity to pursue my passion of telling the story of Wisconsin agriculture,” stated Crayton.
Jenna Lee started her duties with Mid-West Family Broadcasting, and the WI Farm Report on August 14. She’ll be responsible for all day-to-day network operations, as well as in charge of social media interaction and event coordination.
