Drew Petrimoulx Headed to Little Rock’s KARK-KLRT

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting Drew Petrimoulx will join Little Rock, AR, stations KARK and KLRT.

“One reason I’m going is because it’s the state capital, and I have the chance to report on politics,” Petrimoulx told the Sentinel. “The concentration on politics drew me there.”

Petrimoulx left Orlando’s ABC affiliate WFTV in January. He starts at KARK and KLRT in two weeks. “I really appreciated the opportunity that WFTV game me,” Petrimoulx said. “I grew up there. I’m going to miss the people and the relationships.”

Nexstar Broadcasting laid off 30 employees from KARK, the Little Rock NBC affiliate, and KLRT, the FOX affiliate, as part of a consolidation of both stations in January. Nexstar owns and operates KARK and operates KLRT for Mission Broadcasting which bought the station at the start of the year.
