Arkansas’ Time Bomb: Teen Pregnancy




Arkansas’ Time Bomb: Teen Pregnancy
 1991 | KARK-TV, Arkansas Department of Health

In Arkansas, four out of ten teenage girls will become pregnant, ranking the state second in the nation for its rate of teen pregnancy. Recognizing that this complex problem cannot be solved with simple short term solutions, KARK-TV teamed up with the Arkansas Department of Health for a year long public service campaign. Significantly, this campaign was dedicated to informing teenagers and their parents about the resources available to address the situation. Executive Producer Ann Wright and her talented team of producers, directors and writers including Ron Blome, Doug Krile, Tim Washburn, Alan Emanuel, Jeff Watson, Mike Garrett, Robert Addington and Jean Kimble produced the highest caliber of public service television. For an exemplary commitment to the people of Arkansas and for using television to its best effect, a 1991 Peabody to KARK-TV and the Arkansas Department of Health for Arkansas’ Time Bomb: Teen Pregnancy.
