Robert L. “Bob” Buice has been called “an Arkansas broadcast legend.” Mr. Buice graduated from North Little Rock High School and attended Little Rock Junior College. After three years in the army during World War II he returned to the Little Rock area to take up a career in broadcasting. Mr. Buice had a radio and television career that spanned more than 50 years, beginning in 1939 with a program called Uncle Bob’s Bible Stories—a program, incidentally, that was still running 50 years later, which may make it the longest continually broadcast show in Arkansas history. Mr. Buice is best known as announcer and farm director for radio stations KGHI and KARN, as well as farm director for television station KARK in Little Rock. On the Agri Radio Network Mr. Buice produced programs on farm safety, insect control and almost all aspects of farm life. He conducted interviews with FFA and 4-H members, asking them about their achievements and encouraging them in their cattle and swine productions. On the Delta Farm Network, across the state of Arkansas, Mr. Buice kept farmers up-to-date on the latest farming techniques and discoveries. Mr. Buice was a member of the National Association of Farm Broadcasters for 35 years, a member of the Board of Directors for the Arkansas 4-H Foundation and a member of the Board of Pulaski County Farm Bureau. He was the recipient of many awards over the years but perhaps the one in which Mr. Buice—a very active member of Second Baptist Church—took the most pride was the Brooks Hays Christian Citizenship Award which was presented to him July 2, 1989. This award was presented to Mr. Buice for being a model for “demonstrating Christian values and kindness in the marketplace.”
