Francis leaving KARK

Posted By on Tue, Jun 14, 2011 at 2:54 PM

  • KARK
Mike Francis, who has served as chief meteorologist at KARK since 2008, will be leaving the local NBC affiliate to work at WXIA in Atlanta, GA. He has been at Channel 4 since 2001. In terms of TV news, this is a pretty big jump. Atlanta is one of the top-ten news markets. Little Rock comes in at 56 (one market up from Richmond and one smaller than Fresno, for those scoring at home).

UPDATE: Apparently the deal at WXIA has not yet been finalized, contrary to what was released by KARK. An attorney for Francis sent me an email to say that Francis is just a candidate for the job but "conversations are continuing."
