Field Day with Bob Quinn
On Wednesday, September 2, Bob Quinn, host of 1040 WHO Radio’s “The Big Show,” traveled to rural Lucas County to conduct a live broadcast of the show which airs each weekday 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.

In coordination with the Rathbun Land and Water Alliance’s Protect Rathbun Lake efforts and Quinn’s Clean Water in Iowa Starts Here initiative, the show focused on the conservation practices installed on the farms of landowners whose land is located within the Rathbun Lake Watershed. The watershed is located in the six southern Iowa counties of Appanoose, Clarke, Decatur, Lucas, Monroe, and Wayne.
