The Arkansas Broadcasters Association (ABA) is set to celebrate its 70th anniversary as the leading trade association for Arkansas Broadcasters.
ABA began in 1949 as the trade association for broadcasters in Arkansas focused on providing broadcasters with a lobbying voice, while also providing them with technical and regulatory support and continuous professional enrichment opportunities.
Over the years, ABA has been successful at helping Natural State broadcasters stay ahead of the ever evolving and changing landscape of broadcast media.
“ABA has experienced exceptional growth and successes over the years. Moving forward, our focus will remain on offering the broadcasters of Arkansas the resources and education they need to stay at the forefront of the industry. We are excited to celebrate 70 years of Broadcasting Naturally at our convention, ARKCON this July” says Luke Story, Executive Director of the ABA.
The association’s celebration will culminate July 18-19 at its annual ARKCON convention to be held at the DoubleTree Hotel and historic Robinson Center in downtown Little Rock. Governor Asa Hutchinson will be in attendance to recognize the broadcasters for their years of service and commitment to the communities of Arkansas.
