Today's THV and the Arkansas Department of Economic Development presented a one-hour prime time television special at 9pm on Tuesday, December 5th. This special focused on the high technology and knowledge-based jobs Arkansas needs to improve and expand for future success. The program also highlighted how education is the key to our success.

The program, hosted by THV's Anne Jansen, is Arkansas' Brighter Future: Education = Economic Development.

This first-of-a-kind broadcast explored the phenomenal progress of The University of Arkansas' Genesis program, The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences' Bioventure, and Arkansas State University's Biosciences Institute. It also visited a Little Rock family with the dilemma of watching their kids look outside the state for their college education.

The program also focuses on how the EAST Initiative is helping to advance Arkansas' educational opportunities by placing students in a service learning environment while using industry-standard technology.
