Katie Pinke


Katie Pinke, Agweek publisher and general manager, is evidence of rural America’s capabilities. From rural North Dakota, she works as the publisher and general manager of Agweek. Katie and her team create daily digital ag news, a weekly magazine, and regional television show that showcases agriculture “from field to fork” and investigates important issues for the farming and ranching community. The fifth-generation farmers' daughter spent more than 12 years in marketing, then ventured out on her own as a communications consultant and event speaker before joining Agweek full-time in 2016. In addition to her Agweek duties, she remains a keynote speaker across North America. Katie and her husband have three children and own a small business. Outside of her work, Katie is a 4-H leader and active community volunteer.

Since 2015, Katie’s weekly Agweek column takes on family, rural life, motherhood, career, community and more.
