LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – THV11 President and General Manager Marty Schack announced this week that ratings are now in for January 2019, and The Vine is on top for its time period, in its debut month.

According to Nielsen’s insights, The Vine, which premiered in January, is central Arkansas’ highest rated 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. local program in adults 25-54.

The Vine is hosted by Ashley King, along with Laura Monteverdi, Mariel Ruiz, and Adam Bledsoe. King also hosts the midday show on KSSN 96, while Monteverdi and Ruiz anchor THV11 This Morning. 

The hour-long, high energy show is a mix of lifestyle, real talk, entertainment, and loads of fun.  Segments like “LifeList,” “Discover Arkansas,” and “Bustle N Buzz,” help make it unique.  

It also boasts a lineup of contributors like author Deana Williams, who helps get the week started off on the right foot with “Motivational Monday,” and #TommyTuesday in which gospel singer and pianist Tommy Mason Jr. joins The Vine as its, in essence, “house band.”

Schack said, “I’m proud of the incredible team that makes the magic happen daily on The Vine. We’re thrilled it’s been so well-received by the community and advertising partners, and look forward to the show continuing to grow.”

The Vine airs weekday mornings at 9 on THV11.
