Neiswanger will replace staff writer Chris Bahn, who shifted beats late last year to cover Wal-Mart when reporter Cyd King moved to Little Rock. King began covering development in downtown Little Rock after the departure of Jack Weatherly last fall.
Rachel Chaney, the newspaper’s business editor, said Cyd King, who has covered Wal-Mart and the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art out of the northwest Arkansas office, will move to Little Rock to cover the city’s downtown development. Chaney said King had been wanting to move to Little Rock and was excited to start the new beat this week.
Jennifer Cobb Pyron, editor of Arkansas Business Publishing Group’s Little Rock Soiree magazine, has accepted a job as director of communications and strategic planning for the Arkansas Children’s Hospital Foundation beginning June 3.
