NEW AG RADIO NETWORK LAUNCHED IN ARKANSAS
Source: EAB Ag Network news release

East Arkansas Broadcasters has formed the EAB Ag Network, a new farm information radio network that will launch in January, 2014.

The EAB Ag Network is anchored by its flagship station, Jonesboro-based KFIN, and its affiliate listings includes stations located throughout eastern and central Arkansas, with signal coverage in western Mississippi, western Tennessee and southeast Missouri. The network will reach 100% of Arkansas' soybean acreage, and more than 99% of the state's rice acreage.

Several EAB stations are affiliated with the Arkansas Radio Network, through the end of 2013. These stations currently air both ARN and EAB Markets. Beginning in 2014, they will carry only EAB Ag programming, which will include the latest in weather, farm news, and markets.

Mitch Mahan has been named Farm Broadcaster for the EAB Ag Network. A broadcasting and programming veteran, Mahan joined East Arkansas Broadcasters in 2009. He delivers markets and farm news. Cate Morgan has been named Associate Farm Broadcaster.

East Arkansas Broadcasters is a family-owned radio group that began operations in 1956 with KWYN-AM 1400 in Wynne and has grown to include stations in Jonesboro, Stuttgart, and Pocahontas, through its affiliated companies. EAB recently filed an application with the Federal Communications Commision to purchase radio stations in the Arkansas River Valley, which will bring its total number of owned and operated stations to 25, making it the largest radio group in the state.

In addition to their radio stations and the EAB Ag Network, EAB also owns and operates the EAB Sports Network, which is the official radio partner of Arkansas State University Athletics.

"We are very excited about the growth of the EAB family to include the EAB Ag Network," says Bobby Caldwell, Owner/CEO of East Arkansas Broadcasters. "We take great pride in providing valuable and timely local information with all of our stations and we look forward to doing the same thing with the network, to become the voice of agriculture for our farmer listeners."

The EAB Ag Network is represented nationally by Katz Media.
