Pete Hartman

Operations Manager

Pete Hartman was born in 1973 and had a wonderful childhood in Greenbrier. He moved to Harrison in 1989 and then attended North Arkansas Community College from 1992-1994.

In 1994, Hartman moved to Fayetteville to attend the University of Arkansas as a journalism student. By January 1995, he had found his way to KUAF as a work-study student - answering phones and doing clerical work. After learning how to cut audio, Hartman soon began working with Kyle Kellams on Ozarks at Large when it was just one episode per week.

It took Hartman almost 10 years to get his bachelor's degree from the university, because he just had too much fun with the college experience. But by 2004, Hartman entrenched himself in all things KUAF and Rick Stockdell had a position for him, if he would write his senior paper and graduate. Which, he did.

Hartman has served as KUAF's operations manager since that time. For Hartman, it is a job that keeps him on his toes with different duties, including voicing KUAF underwriting announcements. 

Hartman has many hobbies: fishing, fly-tying, dirt biking, metal detecting, but what he enjoys the most is spending time with his wife, Christine, and his three daughters: Evie, Rosa and Sylvie.

He owns a Subaru.
