Despite the loss of much state advertising due to political shifts, our resilient journalism thrives thanks to the support of 4,000 online subscribers. With contributions as low as $10 a month, they ensure access to breaking local news on the Arkansas Blog. Our newsroom is now 100% funded by subscribers and donors, ensuring our independence.

Your donation directly fuels our impact. For example, we’ve welcomed investigative reporter Matt Campbell, known for his exposés, including uncovering Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ questionable purchase. Additionally, Dave Ramsey, renowned for his political reporting, has returned as our Arkansas LEARNS beat reporter, shedding light on educational policy changes.

And now, as we strive to enhance our coverage further, we’re excited to introduce Phillip Powell, our new environment and agriculture reporter, joining us through Report for America’s Mississippi River Basin Ag and Water Desk program. Phillip’s addition to our team underscores our commitment to delivering comprehensive coverage of Arkansas’s economic sector and environmental issues.

Investigative reporter Debra Hale-Shelton’s work has exposed secret affiliations and right-wing agendas, while Mary Hennigan diligently covers City Hall, focusing on critical housing issues. Benjamin Hardy, with his incisive investigative skills, adds depth to our coverage of Arkansas news and politics.

Your support keeps these reporters on the ground, covering vital stories that matter to our community. Will you invest in independent journalism in Arkansas by contributing to the Arkansas Times today?
