Iowa Public Television announced today that agriculture reporter Delaney Howell will be the new host of Market to Market, IPTV’s weekly nationally syndicated agribusiness program. Market to Market’s news and in-depth analysis on the $800 billion business of agriculture is seen across Iowa and 20 other states.

“Delaney understands the commodity markets and represents the next generation,” said David Miller, executive producer of the series. “In the years ahead, she will be the bridge between established producers and the future of agriculture in rural America.”

While growing up on her family’s farm in southeast Iowa, Howell was heavily involved and 4-H and FFA. Howell earned a Bachelor of Science degree in agriculture science from Northwest Missouri State University and is currently working on her master’s degree in agricultural communications.

“Agriculture is where I feel at home,” said Howell following the announcement. “I grew up watching Market to Market. My dad would turn it on every Friday night. That was like church – you didn’t miss it. So that’s the story I keep wanting to tell – agriculture’s story.”

Howell has spent the last few years reporting, producing and hosting several agriculturally related news organizations including Market to Market. Her work also has been seen and heard on Your Ag Network, This Week in Agribusiness and Agri-Pulse. In addition, Howell is the co-creator of the podcast Ag News Daily and has launched her own video production company, AgCulture Media LLC.

“By selecting Delaney Howell as the new host, we’re ushering in a new chapter in Market to Market’s history, while ensuring that the series continues to feature the compelling content that has made it the longest-running program of its kind,” said Molly Phillips, IPTV’s executive director and general manager.
