Arkansas TimesArkansas Times
The Arkansas Times, founded in 1974, is moving away from the “weekly” identifier thanks to our daily news and culture reporting at http://www.arktimes.com that supplements our award-winning weekly newspaper. Our Arkansas Blog, one of four daily blogs, is the most widely-read politics and news blog in the state. Our website also features guides on shopping, dining and adventuring, and searchable databases on public records such as state, county and city salaries. We host a weekly podcast, send out daily and weekly e-mail news alerts and interact daily with our thousands of Twitter followers and Facebook fans. We’ve hosted panel discussions and seminars, sponsored bus trips to music festivals and organized battles of the bands and pinewood derbies for adults.
The Times, located in the economic, political and cultural center of Arkansas — Greater Little Rock — where almost half of the state’s 2.5 million people live, has been the go-to publication for news of the West Memphis Three, thanks to senior editor and “Devil’s Knot” author Mara Leveritt’s coverage. The Times, in all our incarnations, remains Central Arkansas’s most trusted source for news and views on politics, culture, events and dining.
