Arkansas Radio Network will be closing down next month after more than a half-century of providing news, sports and farm market reports over dozens of local stations across the state.
Toby Howell, program director at flagship talk station KARN-FM, 102.9, announced the decision in an email. Some excerpts from the email include:
“Dear ARN Affiliate,
“For over 50 years the Arkansas Radio Network has delivered news and information throughout the Natural State, and we could not have done that without affiliates like you.
“We have appreciated the opportunity to serve your news and information needs, and we will continue to do so for the next 30 days so that you may transition to a new service.”
The email did not state the reason behind the shutting down of the network.
