fps13-teamSpeaking of family, here is your ZimmComm team standing in front of the BASF Media Tent.

This is our biggest team ever at any event! That’s me, Cindy Z, on the left. Next is Leah Guffey, brand new to the team after a four year hiatus from the ag reporting business. Chuck is in the middle, flanked by his all female team members. Our new fall intern Kristyn Stidham is to Chuck’s right and next to her is our darling expectant mother Jamie Johansen. All of us are busy taking photos, doing interviews and shooting video at the show to bring it home to you.
