KUAR/KLRE Rebrands, Names New ‘All Things Considered’ Host

1 min read

NPR affiliate KUAR-FM, 89.1, and its classical music sister station KLRE-FM, 90.5, have rebranded as Little Rock Public Radio, the nonprofit radio broadcaster announced Monday.

“As we celebrate 50 years of Public Radio in central Arkansas, this rebranding represents a fresh chapter in our shared history,” Jonathan Seaborn, general manager of the broadcaster, said in a news release. “We believe that our new name better captures the essence of our community, and we are excited to continue our mission of fostering meaningful conversations and connecting neighbors.”

The broadcaster at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock said it remains dedicated to news programming and teased a “dynamic range” of new programs coming soon that will “reflect the diversity and vibrancy of central Arkansas.”

“This evolution reinforces our pledge to serve as a beacon of reliable information and a catalyst for positive change,” the release says.

Last week, Little Rock Public Radio named Maggie Ryan the local host of “All Things Considered.” Ryan, a San Antonio native, is a former reporting intern for the San Antonio Heron, a nonprofit newsroom focused on housing and development in south-central Texas.

Ryan holds a bachelor’s in English/literary studies and classic from Hendrix College, where she was a writer and editor for the Profile, the campus magazine.
