Farmer radio programs use many different formats. This Broadcaster how-to doc provides a list of useful formats to consider for your program. It offers a brief description of each format, as well as suggestions on what kind of information the format is best suited to communicate, or how the format encourages audience engagement.

The document lists and defines a variety of formats that are commonly used in magazine programs, including: interviews, phone- or text-in segments, panel discussions, mini-dramas, vox pops, diaries, tape talks, mini-documentaries, and more. The resource also covers two formats that are commonly used outside of magazine programs: radio spots and promos.
