Long Time Public TV Advocate Passes Away

A familiar face to AETN viewers passed away last week. Jane Krutz had volunteered at AETN for more than 47 years.

In a memorial to Kruntz, AETN Executive Director Allen Weatherly says "Ms. Jane has been invaluable to AETN since the very beginning." "It is literally true that there might not have been an AETN without her. In fact, she was advocating for a public television station for Arkansas years before we finally made it to the air in the mid 1960s. We have been so fortunate to have someone so involved and outspoken on behalf of AETN and public media as a whole. In 1995 she testified before Congress and took a powerful stance about the power of public television in America and in Arkansas. She was just a remarkable person."
