A former Region 8 news anchor will take over as the interim director of the Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN).

Former anchor Tony Brooks will serve as the executive director following the death of the previous director Allen Weatherly.

Brooks had previously served as the deputy director since 2001 for AETN where he was charged with overseeing the day to day operations of the network.

Brooks also served as reporter, photographer, chief news anchor and managing editor for 16 years at KAIT, winning awards for his news and investigative reporting.
