Arkansas senator to host 'Pryor-Side Chats'

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor is launching a new radio show.

The Democrat from Arkansas says his new radio show will be called "Pryor-Side Chats" and will be posted every two months.

The first installment will be released Friday. Pryor says this week's show will focus on agricultural issues and will feature Andrew Grobmyer of the Agricultural Council of Arkansas. The show will be posted on Pryor's website and distributed to Arkansas radio stations for use.

Pryor was recently appointed chairman of the Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee, which handles funding for agricultural programs and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
