After adhering to more stringent safety protocols throughout the pandemic, the Arkansas Broadcasters Association (ABA) is set to host its annual convention “ARKCON” in person. The event will be held this May in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The association said, following encouragement from ABA members and the broadcast community, “the time is right to come together.”
Luke Story, president and CEO of the ABA, said the association is excited for the opportunity to once again gather in-person at the convention.
“ABA has experienced exceptional growth and successes over the years,” he said. “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.”

The association’s ARKCON will convene May 12-13 at the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Little Rock.
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. Its membership consists of radio and television broadcasters and associate members across the state.
