Veteran Agweek reporter Jonathan Knutson has announced that he will be retiring on Aug. 30.
Knutson joined Agweek in 1989. After two years, he left to join the Forum of Fargo-Moorhead, where he covered agriculture and business for over 19 years. He rejoined Agweek in 2010.
“I’ve particularly enjoyed and appreciated the opportunity to work with talented people at Agweek and so many outstanding agriculturalists in the Upper Midwest and beyond.”
Katie Pinke, Agweek publisher and general manager said:
“We know from Agweek readers and AgweekTV viewers how well-read and appreciated Jon’s reporting is. Jon is a highly respected agriculture journalist who sets a high bar for the next generation of ag journalists to model. He is the most consistent reporter I’ve ever worked with, and our entire team will miss his presence.”
He is also a past-president of the North American Agricultural Journalists.
