Public Information Officer Adam Bledsoe used to appear on KTHV on a Friday segment called Operation Safe Speed.
Today, the Tegna station in Little Rock announced that Bledsoe is joining the team as the newest feature reporter.
“He seemed to be very comfortable and genuine on camera. We started talking about expanding his television role and now—it’s really happening. Adam is a great guy, he cares about his family, his community and always brings a positive outlook. What more could you as for?” said news director David Parker.
Bledsoe is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and was in law enforcement for nearly a decade: first as a police officer, and then as a PIO for the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office.
He starts this month.
