Agriculture Commissioner Kate Greenberg issued the following statement in response to the news of the passing of Brian Allmer, the lead host of the Brian Allmer Radio Network and a dedicated agriculture journalist and radio host.
"I am so deeply saddened to hear the news of Brian Allmer’s passing. It is a shock to so many and an immense loss for Colorado’s agricultural community.
Brian was dedicated to agriculture to his core. He always showed his civility and compassion for others and at the end of each of our monthly interviews would offer a blessing of health and happiness. His loss is made even more difficult as we head into the State Fair, where Brian served as an announcer and broadcaster for the 4H and FFA events for years. His absence will be deeply felt this year and we will do our best to honor his legacy.
On behalf of all of us at the Colorado Department of Agriculture, my deepest condolences to Brian’s family, friends, and to all whose lives he touched."
