tyne morgan

Tyne Morgan is the Host of U.S. Farm Report!

Tyne Morgan is doing what she calls her "dream job," as the first female host of a major agricultural television show. She’s a Missouri girl who has generations of agriculture rooted in her blood. Born and raised in Lexington, Mo., FFA was a big part of her high school career. Her father is an agriculture teacher/FFA Advisory and was her biggest supporter/teacher. Through public speaking and various contest teams, she actually plunged into broadcast at the young age of 16. While in high school, she worked at KMZU radio providing the daily farm market updates, as well as local, state and national agriculture news. Although Tyne always knew she wanted to go into TV, it was then she discovered farm broadcasting was her calling.

Tyne attended the University of Missouri-Columbia where she majored in Agriculture Journalism, with an emphasis in broadcast. During her college years, she was a farm broadcast intern for Brownfield Ag News, and was the 2006 Missouri State Fair Queen, serving as the Ambassador for Missouri agriculture.

Today, you can watch Tyne every week hosting U.S. Farm Report, and helping viewers navigate the volatile markets with the weekly marketing roundtables. She’s also feature every week on Machinery Pete TV and AgriTalk radio.
