2014 Arkansas Media Directory

The 2014 Arkansas Media Directory is now available. The Arkansas Press Association is in the process of removing online purchasing options, so please do not attempt to purchase the publication via APA's website. Copies of the new directory may be purchased by contacting the APA headquarters: 501.374.1500 or kathy@arkansaspress.org. Produced annually, the Arkansas Media Directory is the only complete listing of its kind in the state and a rarity among other states, compiling detailed, comprehensive information on all of the media in the Arkansas—newspapers, news bureaus, broadcasters, television stations, college newspapers and magazines. Roughly 150 other corporate, governmental, advocacy and educational organizations are also included in the section profiling APA's associate members.
