Wally Hall Quits KARN Sports Show

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette editor and sportswriter Wally Hall recently dropped his radio gig with KARN-FM, 102.9, of Little Rock. Hall co-hosted the sports talk show “The Sports Animals” with KARN’s Shawn Arnell Monday through Friday for nearly five years.

Hall briefly acknowledged his resignation from the show at the end of a June 21 column in the Dem-Gazette.

“The most important thing right now is that it will give me more time and energy to take care of my wife, Rachel. She has gastroparesis and hasn’t been able to digest solid food since Jan. 2,” Hall explains in his column.

Not quite like himself in past columns, Hall didn’t mention the show or Arnell by name or voice gratitude to the staff of KARN.

Neither Hall nor KARN manager Cindy Thompson immediately responded to messages seeking comment.
