AETN FoundationAmbassadors Circle


As part of the Ambassadors Circle, you provide crucial unrestricted funds that enable AETN to acquire, produce and broadcast the highest quality television programs and offer significant outreach resources for Arkansas and surrounding communities.

With you by our side, AETN can educate, enrich and inspire! Your support helps to ensure:

  • Over 58 hours a week of educational, non-commercial programming for children. AETN is a safe haven for young viewers.
  • Materials and workshops available to parents, caregivers, teachers and schools to take the learning experience beyond television, such as Ready To Learn, Going To School and Unitedstreaming.
Because I have enjoyed AETN for so many years, I feel it is a privilege to contribute to such a worthwhile organization. It is my way of helping to perpetuate commercial free, clean programming for my grandchildren. - Lavenia Craig - El Dorado
  • A resource to experience the diverse culture and history of Arkansas through locally produced programs like Arkansas Outdoors, Men and Women of Distinction, On The Same Page, Celebrate Arkansas and AETN Presents.
  • Availability of high quality cultural and performing arts, science, and nature programs such as Masterpiece Theatre, Great Performances , British comedies, Antiques Roadshow, NOVA, and Nature.
  • One of the things I believe is that people tend to support what they help to create. That's obviously so with AETN. For 40 years, we have come to expect quality when we watch public television, whether its public affairs or science programs, the arts or children's programming. Even though we have more television stations than ever to choose from, AETN is always at the top of my list. It's worth it, so I support it. - Dan Farley - Little Rock
    • A leader in telling the nation's stories through productions like American Experience and Ken Burn's American Stories as well as bringing a local focus to national issues and concerns such as Bringing U.S. Foreign Policy Home, Alzheimer's in Arkansas: The Help You Need , and Fighting Fat.
    • News and current events with local and national programs like Arkansas Week, Arkansans Ask, The NewsHour, Frontline, and Washington Week.
