LITTLE ROCK, AR - Since KARK went on the air 60 years ago, we've been bringing you sports along with the news and weather of the day.

Some of our early sports anchors were Frank Dill ("Sports Reel" 1954), Les Bolton and Bud Campbell, and then there was Dave Woodman, who became a legend in our studios and across the state.

After Dave, another one of the best remembered things about KARK 4 Sports was Hog Eye 4. The camera cover was in the shape of a razorback. It was detailed with eyes, tusks, and legs with the snout covering the long camera lens. Hog Eye 4 was used whenever KARK covered the Arkansas Razorbacks in action.
