With Steve Barnes out, they let me host another edition of AETN‘s “Arkansas Week,” which you check out at 8 p.m. tonight or later this afternoon at this link. Once again, a big thanks to Steve and the “Arkansas Week” crew for allowing me to fill in. And thanks today’s panelists — Michael Hibblen, Hoyt Purvis and Rick Fahr — for another great show.
On the docket tonight: Martha Shoffner’s baffling May 31 court appearance, which cleared the way to Wednesday’s 14-count indictment; state finances and unemployment; Gov. Mike Beebe’s dip into the rainy day fund to help college students; slumping lottery sales; Tom Cotton’s latest moves in Washington D.C.; and update from Mayflower, where we might be close to getting some answers about that oil spill.
Steve Barnes, me, Michael Hibblen and Nathan Vandiver.
In this week’s edition of AETN’s “Arkansas Week,” me, KUAR-FM, 89.1′s Michael Hibblen and Nathan Vandiver and host Steve Barnes take a look a rapidly heating U.S. Senate race, the state of the state’s economy, another milestone in the Medicaid expansion and more. Plus: Steve has a conversation with Shane Broadway, interim director of the state Department of Higher Education.
It’s time to take another look at the week that was in Arkansas Business. First, above, our weekly “Arkansas Business Week in Review,” which airs Saturday mornings on THV 11 News. We look back on a week chock full of Arkansas public company earnings and other developments.
Meanwhile, AETN’s “Arkansas Week,” we talk about the farm bill in Washington D.C., new developments in the Arkansas governor’s race, earnings season and the abortion law in court. You can watch the full episode — which features me, Rick Fahr, David Keith and host Steve Barnes – right here.
On this week’s edition of AETN‘s “Arkansas Week,” Steve Barnes talks to Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel about ExxonMobil and the Mayflower oil spill. Plus, me, KUAR’s Michael Hibblen and the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette’s Doug Thompson discuss the Medicaid non-expansion expansion and gubernatorial/congressional politics.
On “Arkansas Week” this week, we talk Entergy Arkansas’ system agreement milestone, how the Medicaid expansion is playing at the state capitol and early reaction in Arkansas to Mitt Romney choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate.
You can watch the full episode — with me, Malcolm Glover and Lindsey Millar — right here.
I can’t thank Steve Barnes and the “Arkansas Week” crew enough for asking me to guest-host this week’s show, which you can catch at 8 p.m. tonight on your local AETN station. (If you just can’t wait, you can watch it now right here.)
On this week’s episode, we talk about the remaining ballot proposals Arkansans could face in November, the all-important Farm Bill working its way through Congress, Mike Ross’ health care repeal vote, and the latest developments in our 1st and 4th district congressional races. Rick Fahr, Ernie Dumas and Hoyt Purvis weigh in.
That half-hour really flies by! And don’t worry; Steve’s back next week.
I’m back on AETN’s “Arkansas Week” at 8 p.m. tonight. But you can watch the full episode right now right here.
On the agenda: that surprising state Supreme Court ruling on high school teachers and sex with students, more intrigue at the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery, the futility of establishing an Obama campaign headquarters in Arkansas, and host Steve Barnes’ touching tribute to AETN advocate Jane Krutz, who died this week.
