SLIDESHOW: Inside The Newly Renovated Robinson Center In Little Rock

After nearly two and a half years of work, a ribbon cutting ceremony is set for Thursday at 10 a.m. for Little Rock's Robinson Center. A $70 million renovation is being completed on the auditorium which first opened in 1939.

The project was funded by a two percent tax approved by Little Rock voters in 2013.

Gretchen Hall, president and CEO of the city's Convention and Visitors Bureau, has been overseeing the renovation and spoke with KUAR's Michael Hibblen from inside the newly rebuilt venue. You can hear the interview above.

Michael Hibblen was a journalist for KUAR News from May 2009 — December 2022. During his final 10 years with the station, he served as News Director. In January 2023, he was hired by Arkansas PBS to become its Senior Producer/ Director of Public Affairs.
