KUAR to Fill Vacancy

KUAR-FM, 89.1, the NPR affiliate operated by the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, has completed the application process but has not yet named a new program director.

The position has been vacant since Ron Breeding, the familiar voice who built KUAR’s news organization over the past 12 years, was fired in April. (Clarification, July 17: Breeding says that in April he was given a 30-day notice of termination without cause and that his last official day of employment was May 22.)

General Manager Ben Fry declined to discuss the circumstances of Breeding’s departure, calling it a “personnel issue.”
