KARK to air gubernatorial debate (UPDATE)

Posted By on Tue, Oct 10, 2006 at 3:20 PM

An eagle-eyed Arkansas Blog reader noticed in an online TV listing that Little Rock NBC affiliate KARK will broadcast an "Arkansas Gubernatorial Debate" next Tuesday, Oct. 17 from 7-8 p.m.

That coincides with the last of three debates agreed upon by Mike Beebe and Asa Hutchinson (to the exclusion of the independent and Green Party candidates). Their letter of understanding stipulated that the Oct. 17 meeting will take place in Little Rock. The first two debates took place in Jonesboro and Fayetteville.

KARK's participation means the station will abide by rules dictated by Beebe and Hutchinson, and it offers the closest thing to a statewide television audience so far, since the first two debates were broadcast only by regional stations in Northeast and Northwest Arkansas.

UPDATE: KARK just put its own brief announcement on its website. It reads:

KARK Channel 4 To Air Gubernatorial Debate

KARK Channel 4 is happy to announce we will be the only television station in Arkansas to air the debate between Gubernatorial candidates Asa Hutchinson and Mike Beebe.

The debate will be on Tuesday October 17th from 7pm - 8pm at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock. There are no public tickets available for this debate.
