Membership

The Arkansas Broadcasters Association has been serving radio and television stations across Arkansas since 1949. With more than 240 member stations and a continuously growing number of associate members, the ABA represents the interests of broadcasters at the federal and state level and offers services and resources to broadcasters for free or at significantly reduced rates. 

The ABA is the only trade association which supports, promotes and represents all television and radio broadcasters in Arkansas. A valuable resource for its members, ABA provides information about regulation, advertising, employee recruitment, education and training, and the myriad of issues affecting our changing industry.

Take a look at the work we’ve accomplished as of late!
