Timothy Dennis

Ozarks at Large Producer

Timothy is a life-long Arkansan; he grew up in the hills outside of Winslow and has lived throughout northwest and western Arkansas.  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 degree 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 left 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 KUAF staff as a producer and reporter for Ozarks at Large, generating spot news and feature-length stories. He reports on the local music scene, interviewing and capturing performances of local and traveling performers and bands. He also works with KUAF operations staff on strategic technical planning for the station.
