About Us

The Mission of UA Little Rock Public Radio

The mission of UA Little Rock Public Radio is to deepen insight into the human experience, empower decision-making and enrich the lives of those we serve through quality news and cultural programs.


UA Little Rock Public Radio Values

Community: As connectors of ideas and information, we will provide a service that is valued by and reflective of our diverse community. We will build relationships in order to serve the common good with compassion and dependability.

Education: We will inform our communities with accurate information so that community members may develop informed opinions to better understand how news and culture impact their daily lives. We will foster an environment of life-long learning and curiosity that respects the intelligence of those we serve and our staff.

Truth-Seeking: We will report news with accuracy, fairness, integrity and context to create relationships of trustworthiness and credibility with our communities so that we may hold the systems that run them accountable.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: We believe our differences make us stronger. We believe in fostering respectful and inclusive environments. Our goals are to represent diverse perspectives in our communities and our workplace; to recognize and reduce bias; and, to help our community do the same through our news and programming.

Create a Supportive Work Environment: We will create and celebrate an inclusive, positive and empowering work environment, accessible to all staff members, interns, volunteers and guests.

Innovation: We will approach our work with creativity and a sense of imagination, incorporating good humor, idealism, efficiency, passion and courage.
