Using staffers and technical resources from four of its local stations in Arkansas, Nexstar Broadcasting is launching a statewide daily newscast called “Arkansas Today.”
Beginning today, the half-hour show will air on all four stations — KARK in Little Rock, KNWA in Fayetteville, KTVE in El Dorado and KTAL in Texarkana — on weekdays at noon. Although each station will have live broadcast capabilities for “Arkansas Today,” the newscast’s home base will be at KARK.
In a statement, Nexstar CEO Brian Jones said the show will utilize three satellite trucks and nine live trucks to travel the state.
“These resources combined with our statewide teams of anchors and reporters will bring Arkansas viewers the state’s most comprehensive daily news and weather coverage in a format they can’t get anywhere else,” Jones said.
