LITTLE ROCK, AR - KARK has been a fixture in the downtown Little Rock area since it first opened its doors.

In its 60 years in broadcasting, KARK has been located at three different addresses.

The station's first home was at 10th & Spring on the fringes of downtown. The building had been the Louis-Welling car dealership before being converted into a radio/TV station.

Its first move would take the station deeper into downtown and double its size to 100,000 square feet with the purchase of office space from First National Bank at 3rd & Louisiana. 

KARK now occupies a large portion of the Victory Building's second floor at 1401 W. Capitol, just steps away from the State Capitol, where it moved in 2002.
