The Arkansas Newswrap: December 8, 2023

arkansas newswrap logo

The Little Rock School District is looking at ways to save money in the face of lagging enrollment and rising construction costs. A northeast Arkansas journalism program gets the ax, now university officials are scrambling to replace it with something else. And over $17.5 million will go toward studying ways to improve health outcomes for pregnant women in Arkansas and beyond.

Hear those stories and more on this week's edition of the Arkansas Newswrap from the Arkansas Newsroom.

Join hosts Brandon Tabor from KASU in Jonesboro, Matthew Moore from KUAF in Fayetteville and Little Rock Public Radio's Daniel Breen as they delve into that story, and much more, on this week's episode of the Arkansas Newswrap.

Tune in each week to the Arkansas Newswrap, airing Fridays at 8 p.m. on KUAR 89.1.
