Source: KARK/KNWA News Release KNWA-TV and KARK-TV today announced the appointment of Aaron Peters to lead the charge in the main anchor chair for both market’s Razorback Nation nightly reports and is promoting Jason Carroll to Executive Sports Producer.

Rick Rogala, Vice President and General Manager for KARK-TV commented, “Aaron is a terrific sports journalist with an incredible thirst for the hogs. He’s perfectly suited to lead our Razorback nation coverage, which others may try to copy, but no one can even come close to matching because our commitment to The Arkansas Razorbacks is 365 days a year, not just a week at a time.”

He was charged with heading up the sports anchor chair for the New Fox 24 News at 9 in August 2006. “First of all, this is an incredible opportunity for me,” commented Mr. Peters. “With the daily exposure we deliver from the hill throughout the state, this is a dream job come true for me.

This is the best choice. Great delivery and is easy on the eyes. He's very well known in NWA and has been over LR airwaves long enough now to be recognized. I'm glad this was the choice and will continue to watch.

Peters was a shoe-in for this. He's very likable on air, and naturally a very nice guy.

I just hope he cleans up his act, or at least stop the risky behavior so he doesn't get in trouble again.
