About Market Talk

Market Talk was launched in the fall of 2020, hosted by longtime farm broadcaster and media personality Jesse Allen. Our goal is to bring farmers and ranchers the market information and analysis they need on a daily basis. Each weekday, you can tune in to hear strategies and insight from top marketing professionals to help your operation. Market Talk can be found on the radio and online in podcast form. Market Talk is produced by the American Ag Radio Network.


Born and raised in a small North Central Iowa farming community, Jesse Allen has grown up around agriculture in rural America. Having received numerous state and national awards for his coverage, Allen continues to bring a passion and love of telling agriculture’s story on a daily basis to the radio, podcasts and more.

Allen started his career in 2013 at KGLO AM-1300 and 93.9 The Country Moose in Mason City, IA serving as Farm Director for both stations and later Content Director/Morning Host for The Country Moose. He also assumed the role of Farm Format Captain for Alpha Media from 2018-2020. He currently serves as National Content Director for the American Ag Network along with hosting duties for Market Talk and the nationally syndicated ag radio program, Agriculture of America.

He currently lives with his wife Katie and their two dogs in Nashville, TN. Allen is also a successful country music recording artist, songwriter and producer on top of being a longtime farm broadcaster.
