Regional Emmy Awards

Arkansas PBS wants to congratulate its team for earning an incredible 18 Mid-America Emmy Award nominations. The full spectrum of our content was recognized, from full length cultural documentaries, such as “Dirt”, to our Arkansas Live special event coverage of Yo-Yo Ma and Carrie Mae Weems from Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences will announce the winners at the end of this month. Stay tuned in to our social media platforms for updates.

Public Media Awards

We are privileged to tell Arkansas stories and we’re humbled to be finalists for 11 Public Media Awards. The National Educational Telecommunications Association’s 55th Annual competition included nominations for many of our teams. The prestigious “Overall Excellence” categories recognized three of our teams including marketing & communications, community engagement and education. We are grateful to our entire team and all of our partners, including YOU!
