As Director of National Sales for Northern Broadcasting System Rick Coyle draws on a strong background in production agriculture, education and industry marketing to fill a key position on the network's sales team. Rick was raised on an irrigated farm and purebred cattle operation in Fromberg, MT. He attended Northwest College in Powell, Wyoming and later graduated from Montana State University in Bozeman with a B.S. degree in Agriculture Education.
During Rick's 10 years as Vocational Agriculture Instructor and FFA Advisor in Pinedale and Kaycee, Wyoming, many of his students went on to become state officers, proficiency and speech winners, and most importantly...agriculture leaders in their local community.
