Timothy Dennis

Ozarks at Large Producer, KUAF Technical Director

Timothy is a life-long Arkansan; he grew up in the hills outside of Winslow and has lived in Fort Smith, Rogers and Fayetteville.  As a budding musician in his formative years, he became enthralled with recording technology, which carried over into his collegiate studies of print and multimedia journalism at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Upon receiving his B.A. in journalism in 2011, Timothy immediately began working as a freelance reporter and photographer for the Washington County Observer in West Fork, Winslow and Greenland. It wasn't long before he eschewed the newspaper business for radio and began working full-time as an announcer and news programmer for KURM AM/FM in Rogers.

After working for about a year in radio, Timothy was recruited to join the staff of KUAF in late 2012 as a Web producer and reporter for Ozarks at Large, generating stories for the local newscast at the top of the show as well as feature-length stories. Since then, he has worked with the operations staff on strategic technical planning. Outside of his work for the station though, Timothy has also done some freelance work. Most notably, he helped produce a piece for a collaboration between American Public Media's Marketplace and the New York Times in early 2014.

Ways to Connect

This weekend offers plenty of opportunities for live music, including a pair of funky shows in Fayetteville, a folk duo in Bentonville, and a celebration of the Buffalo River in Mena.

The coming days present plenty of opportunity to see and hear quality music in the region, beginning tonight with a performance by one of Greenland's finest (the country, not the town).

NOTE: The Saturday evening performance by Nive Nielsen at Haxton Road Studios is free, but seating is limited. You can reserve a seat here.

The 70th Annual Ozark Folk Festival will take place this weekend in Eureka Springs, but that's not the only musical event worth seeing (and hearing) this weekend.

Gustav Carlson is a comic book artist from the Ozarks. The scenes depicted in his original works range from Ozarks-themed adventures to explorations in space. But, like many other comics, his works also include monsters and creatures of all shapes and sizes. Because he deals with monsters in his craft, we asked Gustav to create a list of what he considers the greatest monsters of all time. It’s a list we’re calling the Mount Rushmore of Monsters.

On today's show, the legislative-appointed Arkansas Feral Hog Eradication Task Force is considering the use of a poison bait to control nuisance feral swine in Arkansas and we get a response from the founder of Christian Alcoholics & Addicts in Recovery about an investigative report published by public radio program Reveal. Also, a story about an effort has been underway in Marvell to restore the boyhood home of Levon Helm and to create a bust memorializing the musician.
