Little Rock media couple Ashley Ketz and Aaron Nolan of KARK are moving to Chicago.

Nolan, Channel 4’s morning anchor and a Maumelle native, will be weekend breaking news anchor for “News Nation,” a new project for WGN America, another station in the Nexstar chain.

Ketz, a Batesville native who was a main evening anchor at KARK, will be a national reporter and fill-in anchor.

“We’re excited,” Nolan told Arkansas Business. “Ashley and I have been blessed to work together for most of our married lives.” He said leaving their home market for a huge city wasn’t easy. “We realized this was a one-of-a-kind opportunity … and a fantastic chance to build something new and progress in our careers.”
