New KARK Anchor Named
This didn't take long. KARK/Channel 4/Little Rock has already named a replacement for Jessica Dean who is headed to Philadelphia:
Ashley Ketz is returning home to Arkansas as the new evening co-anchor of KARK 4 News in Little Rock. The Batesville native will anchor the 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. broadcasts alongside Bob Clausen beginning in September. Ketz is currently an evening anchor at Nexstar Broadcasting’s KOLR-TV in Springfield, Missouri.
“We couldn’t be more excited about welcoming Ashley home to Arkansas,” said KARK News Director Austin Kellerman. “Ashley has done a standout job since joining Nexstar Broadcasting’s station in Springfield. It’s a natural transition for her to return home and help lead our team in Little Rock.”
