Rhonda Dillard

KUAF Underwriting Director, Promotions

Rhonda Dillard has been the Underwriting Director at KUAF for almost 25 years.  Rhonda knew from an early age that she would work in radio via one form or another.

After moving to Arkansas in the fourth grade, Rhonda grew up in Springdale and graduated from Springdale High School.  She spent many hours listening to the radio and developed a life long passion for music.  While attending the University of Arkansas, Rhonda worked at both the student ran College Radio station (KRFA) and was a DJ on the local rock station (KKEG) on the weekends.  She added a sales job at Hastings Books, Records and Entertainment plus a KUAF internship to her schedule.  The internship would eventually lead to her position at KUAF today.

Rhonda lives in Fayetteville where she enjoys her family and friends, the arts, and playing music with her friends in "Ultra Suede".

Ways to Connect

WHAT IS AN UNDERWRITING SPONSORSHIP?

An important financial contribution to quality radio is made by foundations, corporations and individuals who provide funds to underwrite the presentation of a program or series of programs broadcast on KUAF.

WHAT IS KUAF AND NPR?

From local and world events, to music and breaking news, more and more radio listeners are tuning to KUAF 91.3 NPR for our coverage, information and entertainment.  Your message can be heard by this desirable group of listeners and consumers.

KUAF will begin airing Ozark Highlands Radio this Sunday at 3 pm on 91.3 FM.

Ozark Highlands Radio is a weekly radio program that features live music and interviews recorded at Ozark Folk Center State Park’s beautiful 1,000-seat auditorium in Mountain View, Ark. In addition to the music, our “Feature Host” segments take listeners on a musical journey with historians, authors and personalities who explore the people, stories and history of the Ozark region.
