Arkansas governor names new director for AETN

CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson has named a new director for the Arkansas Educational Television Network following last year's death of the network's longtime director.
 
The governor announced Tuesday that Courtney Pledger would serve as AETN's new director, beginning March 20. Pledger has served as executive director of the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival and as executive producer for DreamWorks Animation.
 
She takes over as executive director following the November death of Allen Weatherly, who'd worked more than 20 years at Arkansas' statewide educational TV network.
 
AETN broadcasts through six stations across Arkansas.
