Former KARK'er Named Press Secretary for Huckabee
A blog reader left this in the comments section of the Alice Stewart post:
Gov. Mike Huckabee announced Monday that Alice Stewart, formerly of KARK-TV in Little Rock, has joined the governor's staff as press secretary. Stewart has been a weekend anchor and reporter for KARK-TV. She will join Jim Harris, Huckabee's director of press operations, as a spokesman for the governor.
Stewart, an Atlanta native, graduated in 1988 from the Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia in Athens. She worked as a reporter and producer for a television station in Dothan, Ala., before returning to Atlanta as an associate producer for two television stations. Stewart later was a producer and anchor for a television station in Savannah, Ga.
Stewart moved to Little Rock in 1998 to work for KARK-TV. She has an extensive background in government and political coverage. Stewart covered the 1988 Democratic National Convention, the Georgia Legislature, the Arkansas Legislature and Wesley Clark's 2004 presidential campaign. She has won a number of journalism awards.
Stewart is an avid runner who has completed 11 marathons. She helped train the governor for this year's Little Rock Marathon and helped train the members of the Arthritis Foundation's Joints In Motion marathon team.
Stewart is a member of St. James United Methodist Church in Little Rock and a volunteer for the Museum of Discovery.
"Arkansans are familiar with Alice and respect her work," Huckabee said. "I'm delighted to have her as part of our team."
