Orion Samuelson


A Farmfest favorite will be the special noontime guest of the Linder Farm Network on Tuesday, Aug. 6. Orion Samuelson is returning to the Farmfest grounds for one day to complete TV work and visit onstage with Lynn Ketelsen, farm broadcaster.

Orion was last at Farmfest two years ago, and it will be fun to see him and hear his unmistakable voice.

Orion is the agribusiness director at WGN Radio in Chicago – a position he’s held since 1960. He presents seven stock market/ag reports daily on WGN and is also heard across the U.S. with his syndicated “National Farm Report” and “Samuelson Sez” commentary programs.

Max Armstrong and Orion host the “Saturday Morning Show” on WGN, and broadcast from RFD-TV as cohosts of “This Week in Agri-Business.”

With a calm demeanor and keen interest in everything and everyone, Orion is considered a friend to many. He’s received many awards and honors for sharing the story of U.S. and global agriculture.

Enjoy a noon lunch in the shade of the Wick Buildings Farmfest Center and watch the Linder Farm Network Noon Show. Free ice cream treats will be served up each day for Minnesota Farmfest 2019.
