Campbell bringing agricultural, rural news to viewers

As if his days aren’t already long enough, Mike Campbell of Henrietta began a new gig on Monday.

Campbell is now the host of “Texoma Country,” a segment on the KFDX morning show “3 News Today.” The segment focuses on agriculture news and rural affairs, and is similar to the RFD 3 segments by longtime host Joe Brown, who retired in December after 47 years with the station.

“It is a good way for us to get back to covering some ag news,” said KFDX News Director Doug Bilyeu. “We look forward to Mike bringing back some of that.”

With the addition of Campbell’s segment, “3 News Today,” with Greg Parker, Ann Arnold and Meteorologist Bryan Rupp, has moved to 5 a.m. “Texoma Country” runs from 5:15-5:30 a.m. “3 News Today” returns at 5:30 a.m.

As part of “Texoma Country,” Rupp has added special ag related forecasts, including information on weather-related animal stress.

Campbell is an education specialist in technology at the Region IX Service Center in Wichita Falls, co-host of the “Rise and Shine Show” on Newstalk 1290 radio, and serves on the Henrietta ISD Board of Trustees.

Campbell is a native of Vashti and a 1971 graduate of Bellevue High School.
