dp-radio interview say anything photo-140421CEDAR RAPIDS, IA -- (April 24, 2014) --U.S.-grown rice was the topic of discussion in a recent segment of What's Happening with Doug Wagner, a popular radio talk show here. Wagner welcomed USA Rice Federation's Domestic Promotion Manager Katie Maher as a guest, and the two discussed the new rice nutrition research which shows that rice eaters have eating patterns more consistent with the recommendations of the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Maher explained that rice is the perfect building block for healthy eating.  She pointed out that rice combines well with lean meats, vegetables, fruits, beans and nuts so it's easy for people to create a healthy meal and improve their diet just by adding white or brown rice to the menu.

"The program's host, Doug Wagner, was impressed when I told him that U.S. farmers grow 18 billion pounds of rice each year," said Maher.  "I also took the opportunity to encourage listeners to look for the 'Grown in the USA' logo on rice packages when making purchases at their local grocery store."

What's Happening with Doug Wagner is broadcast daily on AM 600 WMT - News Talk Sports, the top news radio station in Iowa and an affiliate of Clear Channel Media and Entertainment.
