KUAR News Intern, Summer 2014

Thomas Saccente is a news intern at KUAR Public Radio. He is currently a Senior at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky, and is majoring in English with a double minor in Creative Writing and Film Studies. 

A native of Little Rock, Thomas developed a passion for writing while attending Episcopal Collegiate School, a passion that stayed with him ever since. He has written a wide variety of articles for the Centre College newspaper, The Cento, as well as poetry and short fiction for Vantage Point, the Centre College literary magazine. Thomas began interning at KUAR in order to learn how to apply this skill in a way that was both exciting and beneficial, as well as to meet new people and discover new ways to tell stories. He has loved every second of it.

When Thomas is not working for KUAR, he can usually be found writing stories, riding his bike, reading books, and indulging in his obsession with classic movies. He hopes to one day be able to pursue a career in news in one way or another, hopefully in radio.

At the intersection of psychology and art lies the work of a new up-and-coming Arkansas artist.

Kateri Joe of Conway is currently having her first exhibition at the Historic Arkansas Museum in downtown Little Rock. It’s entitled “Thank Your Lucky Stars” and is built around the theme of humanity’s relationship with the cosmos and the idea that everyone is connected to the universe at large.
