About Roby

Roby Brock is the CEO of Natural State Media, parent company for Talk Business & Politics and The Northwest Arkansas Business Journal.

Brock is the host and executive producer of Talk Business & Politics, a 19-year old multi-media news organization reporting on business and politics in Arkansas.

Under Brock’s direction, content is driven through many channels such as the Talk Business & Politics TV show, which airs Sunday mornings at 9:30 am on KATV Channel 7, 10 am on KAIT’s NBC affiliate, and 10:30 am on KFSM Channel 5 in Northwest Arkansas.

Brock also moderates radio programs on NPR affiliates statewide and a daily digital newscast at TalkBusiness.net. In partnership with Hendrix College, Talk Business & Politics conducts statewide polling on political and business issues throughout the year.

TB&P also reports through a subscription magazine, daily e-newsletters and web reports featuring state business profiles, industry developments and current political discussions.

In September 2016, Natural State Media acquired the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal and is expanding its coverage in this region of the state. In March 2018, Talk Business & Politics will launch a new print publication in Northeast Arkansas.
