Timothy Dennis

Ozarks at Large Producer, KUAF Technical Director

Timothy is a life-long Arkansan; he grew up in the hills outside of Winslow and has lived in Fort Smith, Rogers and Fayetteville.  As a budding musician in his formative years, he became enthralled with recording technology, which carried over into his collegiate studies of print and multimedia journalism at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Upon receiving his B.A. in journalism in 2011, Timothy immediately began working as a freelance reporter and photographer for the Washington County Observer in West Fork, Winslow and Greenland. It wasn't long before he eschewed the newspaper business for radio and began working full-time as an announcer and news programmer for KURM AM/FM in Rogers.

After working for about a year in radio, Timothy was recruited to join the staff of KUAF in late 2012 as a Web producer and reporter for Ozarks at Large, generating stories for the local newscast at the top of the show as well as feature-length stories. Since then, he has worked with the operations staff on strategic technical planning. Outside of his work for the station though, Timothy has also done some freelance work. Most notably, he helped produce a piece for a collaboration between American Public Media's Marketplace and the New York Times in early 2014.

Ahead on Ozarks, a business degree from the University of Arkansas without ever seeing Old Main or setting foot on senior walk: an online degree is now a reality. Plus, we get an update on updating Cane Hill, one of the oldest communities in the region.

The two candidates in this year's Arkansas governor's race recently discussed their views of what the future holds for the state's Private Option. The future of hog farms in the Buffalo River Watershed may be uncertain with a recently proposed ban on confined animal breeding operations near the national river. And the Fort Smith Fire Department may not have to travel as far for training in the future, if the city board of directors approves construction of a training facility in the city.
