Sarah Perriam is producer and co-host of RadioLIVE's Rural Exchange (REX). She uses her REX radio show and weekly, Friday ‘rural’ segment with Duncan Garner on the AM Show as platforms to regularly talk about the big issues in agribusiness.

In 2018, Sarah hosted the 50th FMG Young Farmer of the Year—which was live-broadcast on Newshub.co.nz—and was nominated as a finalist in the Westpac Women of Influence.

Sarah hopes that as the millennial consumer continues to trend towards more critical thinking and demand more thought-led journalism, New Zealand is well positioned to leverage our “transparency currency.”

Sarah has spent the last decade producing, presenting, directing and creating rural media content after her media career began at the age of 24. It was over this time that she learnt so much about not only the efforts farmers go to—to produce a premium, grass-fed, ethical product—but also the challenges they face to tell their story in a fair and balanced way.
