Alexandria Brown hosts “All Things Considered” from 4 to 6 p.m. weekdays and “Weekend Edition” on Saturday mornings from 7 to 10 a.m. on KUAR 89.1


The mission of UA Little Rock Public Radio – KUAR 89.1 and KLRE Classical 90.5 – 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.

  • KUAR 89.1 is central Arkansas’ NPR member station, providing local news coverage as well as popular national and local programming such as “Morning Edition,” “All Things Considered,” “1A,” “Arts & Letters” and “Not Necessarily Nashville.”
  • KLRE Classical 90.5 offers 24/7 classical music programming including “Performance Today,” “Exploring Music,” and the “Metropolitan Opera.” Both stations are indispensable parts of central Arkansas’ cultural landscape.


UA Little Rock Public Radio is a listener-supported radio station, which relies on financial support from listeners, local businesses and organizations. The stations host on-air fund drives, an annual meeting and look forward to again hosting seasonal in-person gatherings and events when it is safe to do so. The Fall Fund Drive, Oct. 4-8, includes community and staff voices and is all about public radio and its listeners.
