LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Here's a rundown of the top business news in the state, courtesy of Arkansas Business' Lance Turner.
Oaklawn Racing and Gaming in Hot Springs looking to expand again.
The Hot Springs Planning Commission is scheduled to vote this week on a 58,000 square-feet expansion of Oaklawn's gaming area.
General Manager Eric Jackson said the plan is separate from the racetrack's previous expansion, which was completed in May 2009.
Jackson attributes the expansion to the growth Oaklawn has seen since Arkansas voters legalized electronic gambling machines at racetracks in Hot Springs and West Memphis.
If the planning commission approves the site plan, work could begin next May.
A shakeup is happening at a fast-growing social media marketing and advertising firm in northwest Arkansas.
Collective Bias of Bentonville, which in April secured more than $10 million in investment funding, announced that one of its co-founders, John Andrews, has left the company.
Andrews was also president and CEO of the firm, so Collective Bias also announced a new Chief Executive, Bill Sussman, who most recently worked in Bentonville for Nickelodeon.
Sussman has also worked for Wal-Mart.
Collective Bias, which Forbes magazine named this year among its "most promising" American companies, uses a network of more than a thousand bloggers to promote advertisers' products.
