Reporter Crossing the Aisle

There have been some moves in recent weeks at the Arkansas News Bureau, Stephens Media's Little Rock news hub.

Longtime business reporter Wesley Brown says has left his beat to work for a company that was often the subject line of many of his stories - Alltel Corp. of Little Rock.

"I'm going to miss working in the media and covering a wide range of business topics on a daily basis," Brown said. "But now I'll be transitioning into the business world and look forward to the challenge."

Brown says Alltel hasn't yet given him an official title, but he will be working with Andy Moreau, whose name you've seen several times in this paper as the vice president of corporate communications.

Reporter Aaron Sadler left the Little Rock bureau earlier this month for a job at Stephens Media's Washington, D.C., bureau.
