KASU-FM to Premiere New Radio Series

July 31, 2018

07/30/2018

JONESBORO – KASU-FM, the public radio station of Arkansas State University, will premiere a one-hour weekly radio program on Saturday, Aug. 4, titled “A-State Connections.” 

The new series will inform listeners of the many ways which Arkansas State University is connecting to people in the region, across the state and around the world. The program will be broadcast each Saturday at 11 a.m. on 91.9 FM and streamed at kasu.org.

Mark Smith, newly appointed KASU station manager, expressed the goal of this new endeavor, “Over KASU’s 60-plus years on the air, we have been billed as ‘the broadcasting service of Arkansas State University.’ This new program branches off of that idea of ‘service,’ by sharing the different ways that A-State is impacting our region.

“We have groundbreaking research going on throughout the A-State System. We have faculty members writing fascinating books. We have outstanding arts and entertainment events. We want to share all of this on KASU, not only for our listeners on 91.9 FM, but also for others who access KASU online, through the NPR app, through a smart speaker, or who follow us on social media.”

KASU news director Johnathan Reaves will host “A-State Connections,” and other KASU staff members will also produce content for the radio show. 

“I am excited to host this show every week,” Reaves stated. “There are many amazing stories to tell regarding the impact that Arkansas State University is making across the region and the state.  We want to be able to tell those stories. 

“We want to provide a voice to the faculty that has published articles and conducted research, to the staff that makes the university campuses run every day, and to the students that are honored with recognitions and awards.  We want to tell what is happening on the campuses in Jonesboro, Newport, Mountain Home, West Memphis and Beebe and how they are making connections with their communities to make life better.” 

In addition to the weekly radio broadcast, content produced for “A-State Connections” will also be available on demand at kasu.org.  Future plans for the series include a podcast version of the show.
