Weather Channel Field Producer Michelle Birnbaum talks with Cherokee County farmer John Bert East and Extension agronomist Charles Burmester during filming last week. The show will air on The Weather Channel on Wednesday, 7 p.m. CDT.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- The Weather Channel will air a segment featuring two north Alabama farmers Wednesday, 7 p.m., as the cable channel takes a look at the toll this summer's drought has taken on the fall cotton crop.

Michelle Birnbaum, a field producer with The Weather Channel out of Atlanta, interviews Cherokee County farmers John Bert East and David Derrick, and Charles Burmester, an Extension agronomist with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, in the segment which will air once an hour during the 7, 8 and 9 p.m. CDT hours.

The segment will actually be one of two shows featuring Alabama farmers on television Wednesday night.

At 5:30 p.m., RFD-TV will feature Alabama farmers on its Farm Bureau Today weekly series.

In that program, produced by the Alabama Farmers Federation's Broadcast Director Kevin Worthington, viewers will see an operation that features custom weaning of beef calves, the 2007 Alabama Farm of Distinction owned by Billy and Terri Gilley of Cullman County, Andy and Wae Ellis' Cherokee County business which converts gin trash to mulch, a profile of J.C. Carnley of Opp, who's still farming at 100 and a new "raceway" at Butch Wilson's Dallas County catfish pond. The show will be repeated several times during the week after its initial broadcast (check local listings).
