KUAF News and Notes


It’s time for KUAF’s fall on-air fundraiser and this year it’s a short one! Just 6 short days – from Monday, October 5th through Saturday, October 10th - but again this year, ALL gifts we receive in the month of October will count toward our fall goal of $180,000. If we are still far from our goal by the end of the month, we will come back for a short two day on-air drive to get us over the top – on Thursday, October 29th and Friday, October 30th. Help us end the fundraiser early so we don’t have to come back!

Ozarks at Large will help kick off the 2015 edition of the Fayetteville Roots Festival with a FREE, live two-hour broadcast from the Fayetteville Public Library today, Friday August 28th.  Many of the festival's headliners will be performing, including John Fullbright and Pokey LaFarge.

As part of KUAF’s 30th anniversary celebration, KUAF News Director, Kyle Kellams, will host a free panel discussion on the "State of Investigative Journalism" at the Fayetteville Public Library, this Saturday August 8th, at 1:30pm.  

Panelists include: 

MARA LEVERITT, author of The Devil’s Knot on the case of the ‘West Memphis Three’ and 

BENJI HARDY, of the Arkansas Times, whose reporting on Arkansas Representative, Justin Harris, and the Arkansas Department of Human Services gained national attention earlier this year.  

Join KUAF this Friday night, August 21st, at the AMC Fiesta Square 16 in Fayetteville for the 7:15 pm special viewing of the film. It’s “KUAF Night At The Movies” and we have a limited number of FREE tickets for the show. Call or email KUAF to reserve your seats for this English-language adaptation of French director Alain Tixier’s acclaimed documentary, originally titled “Beny: Back to the Wild”.
