Katie Pinke


Katie Pinke, Agweek publisher and general manager, is evidence of rural America’s capabilities. From remote locations in rural North Dakota, she works as the publisher and general manager of Agweek. Katie and her team create a weekly magazine and regional television show that showcase agriculture “from field to fork” and investigate important issues for the farming and ranching community. The fifth-generation farm girl spent more than 12 years in marketing, then ventured out on her own as a communications consultant and event speaker. 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 and family duties, Katie serves on the city council and volunteers for community organizations.

Katie’s weekly Agweek column takes on family, rural life, motherhood, career, community and more. Connect with her on her Pinke Post Facebook page or on Twitter or Instagram, where along with insightful takes on rural life and agriculture she shares the beauty of North Dakota, from sunrises to sunsets and ball games to barnyards.
