Changes Coming to Noon News for Local Nexstar Stations
Source: KARK Viewers of KARK News at Noon may notice a couple changes when they tune in beginning Monday, April 2. That's because the first 30 minutes of the show will be shown across the state of Arkansas.
"Arkansas Today," featuring Mallory Hardin and meteorologist Greg Dee, will launch Monday and be seen on KARK in Little Rock, KNWA in Fayetteville, KTVE in El Dorado and KTAL in Texarkana. The broadcast will be available in 1.4 million households.
In addition to news from across the state, Arkansas Today will feature a daily Razorback Nation report, valuable health reports from renowned doctors, weekly fishing reports from Big Sarge, and a chance to connect and discuss news topics with other Arkansans through the Arkansas Today Facebook page and Twitter account.
"We know that Arkansas pride goes beyond just the town or city that people live in. Arkansans are passionate and want to be informed about what's happening throughout the state." said Nexstar Broadcasting Director of Local Content Development Jerry Walsh, "Arkansas Today is unique in the fact that four stations are being given equal ownership of a product with one goal; to provide complete coverage of news and weather relevant to people in every county of Arkansas."
With the change in programming, the popular "Dialing for Dollars" segment will now move to the 12:30 p.m. portion of the program. Dr. David will continue to be featured in the second half hour on both Wednesdays and Fridays.
