Veteran news anchor and long-time executive director of the Arkansas Broadcasters Association Doug Krile has announced he will retire from the post at the end of the organization’s July convention.
Krile has served as ABA director for the last seven years.
“I’ve made many friends in the Arkansas Broadcasting community during my time at ABA. I thoroughly enjoyed the past seven years, and consider it the ideal way to cap off more than 45 years in radio and TV,” Krile said.
The ABA represents commercial television and radio stations across the state.
“The broadcasting industry is rapidly changing, but remains vitally important to keeping the public informed and entertained,” he added.
A search committee has been formed to replace Krile and will be led by ABA President-elect Bradford Caldwell.
“We plan to seek out qualified applicants from both inside and outside of Arkansas. Having a leader with strong association experience will be helpful in advocating for the ABA and promoting our programs,” Caldwell said.
