SF Podcast Episode 13: RFD-TV Founder and President, Patrick Gottsch
Patrick Gottsch may seem an unlikely media mogul. But he has built a one-of-a-kind media powerhouse that includes two TV networks, a national satellite radio network, a magazine – and he’s not done yet! Inspired by his agricultural roots, and pulling from his knowledge and experience in commodity trading, satellite television, and livestock auctions, Patrick has found a niche that many so-called experts said didn't exist.
Successful Farming host Dave Mowitz sat down with Patrick to talk about RFD-TV, and Patrick's role in advocating for Rural America, as well as reconnecting city and country.
