About Larry Steckline

Born and raised on a farm near WaKeeney, Kansas, Larry's agricultural roots led him to become manager of the Wichita Livestock Market Foundation in 1965. In 1967 he began his television broadcasting career as farm director with KTVH in Wichita, and by 1968 he began broadcasting agricultural news on KFRM-AM. He was the agri-business broadcaster at Kansas State television network (KSN) Channel 3 for more than thirty years appearing daily on television stations in throughout Kansas and has continually broadcast on multiple radio stations since 1968. For decades, Larry has been widely recognized as "the voice of Kansas agriculture."

In 1974 Larry built KJLS FM radio station in Hays as the first FM station in western Kansas, and over the next 35 years owned more than 26 radio stations in Kansas and Oklahoma. In 1976 Larry began the Mid America Ag Network, which carried his agri-business news on 48 stations in a 4-state area—Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Colorado. In the ensuing years, he also began the Mid America News Network and the Mid America Sports Network, which held the exclusive rights to broadcast K-State sports programming.

In 2003, Governor Kathleen Sebelius appointed Larry to serve on the Kansas State Fair Board, where he served until 2009 having made notable improvements in the cattle program. During his career, Larry traveled the globe with four U.S. Secretaries of Agriculture as a member of official delegations and he consulted with four sitting U.S. Presidents on agricultural policy.

Larry is still active in farming, raising wheat in central Kansas, and is the father of three adult children and nine grandchildren. After the death of his wife, Larry remarried then Kansas Attorney General Carla Stovall.
