Petrimoulx will cover the festivities through the eyes of Arkansans attending the week’s events.
“This just reinforces our commitment to being the go-to station in Central Arkansas for political coverage,” said KARK News Director Austin Kellerman. “As Your Local Election Headquarters, we’re following the process through to this historic time for Arkansas and our nation.”
