Before coming to AETN, Chuck Dovish was mainly known for his "Travelin' Arkansas" segments which aired on KTHV-Channel 11 for more than 25 years. Since October of 2005, Chuck has been producing and hosting "Exploring Arkansas" which showcases all the high adventure the Natural State has to offer. This one-of-a-kind program features the most breathtaking and spectacular sights in Arkansas. There's extreme adventure like hang gliding, kayaking, rappelling, rock climbing, wild caving and not to mention some of Arkansas's best kept secrets such as secluded and scenic waterfalls.
Chuck has been exploring Arkansas for more than 40 years and continues to surprise and entertain viewers with his sights and subjects. His philosophy throughout the years has always been to illuminate the culture and heritage of Arkansas, in addition to conservation and preservation of the pristine outdoors of the Natural State. Exploring Arkansas was the 2009 recipient of the Sierra Club Conservation Award. Chuck says he's always trying to promote our great state in any way, shape or form that he can.
Wednesdays in February
- 2/28 Arkansas' Fiddle Queen, Bull Shoals Eagles, Original Duck Dynasty
Ninety-Eight year-young Violet Hensley of Yellville was designated as an Arkansas Living Treasure in 2004 for her fiddle playing and fiddle making skills - she makes them in her kitchen, from scratch. During January and February at Bull Shoals-White River State Park you can view the bald eagle splendor there along the river by hiking one of the nature trails. The original Duck Dynasty, contrary to what others might say…is the family of Chick Major in Stuttgart, who began making duck calls in 1939, and who's succeeded by one of his daughters, who continues making the calls.
