PBS Newshour gave some good exposure to Arkansas last night with an extended piece on the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub and interview with its new leader, Chris Jones.(He was featured recently in a Times cover story.)

Jones, a Pine Bluff native who returned to his home state after working at MIT, is, said PBS, “on a mission to reduce barriers for low-income people, women and people of color toward becoming innovators, makers, thinkers and entrepreneurs.”
