These Podcasts Are Brought To You By

Ashley Smith

the ouachita chronicles host

In addition to co-hosting The Ouachita Chronicles with her partner in crime, Jeri, Ashley is the General Manager of Pulse Multimedia. In what little free time she has, Ashley enjoys traveling with her husband and hanging out with her three children. She is a textbook Type A personality, reads way too much into her astrological sign, and although she loves to travel, the Ouachitas will always be home.

Jeri Pearson

The ouachita chronicles host

Jeri co-hosts The Ouachita Chronicles with her best friend and colleague, Ashley. When Jeri isn’t providing colorful commentary to podcast interviews, she is the News Editor of The Polk County Pulse. A Louisiana native, she now calls the Ouachitas home. She is sometimes silly, sometimes serious, but is always belting out showtunes. In her spare time, Jeri expresses her excessive creativity through painting and wordsmithing.

Jay Wesley Lindly

regrettable host

Graduating in Oklahoma City, Jay has 20+ years experience in the broadcasting industry, from big city to small town. He has hosted his own morning show, The Morning Brew, for nine years out of DeQueen, Arkansas on KDQN. When not at the station, Jay can be found working hard towards that Diamond Level Cruise status, involuntarily lapsing into his over the top radio voice, or keeping a running tally of how many kids he and his wife, Laura, actually have.

Tyler Massey

regrettable host

Born in Arkansas, Tyler moved around quite a bit in his younger years and ended up in Canada. He graduated high school in 2011, and worked in the service industry for many years until getting a job in Arkansas Radio in 2020. Tyler’s favorite thing to do is hate on things he actually likes. He enjoys cougar hunting, updating his Tinder profile, and perfecting his mic skills just in case Death Row Records comes calling.

Patrick Massey

regrettable host

An accomplished local journalist and Lego architect, Patrick has been reporting in southwest Arkansas for over a decade. He has experience in the newspaper industry, and is the News Director for KDQN in De Queen, Arkansas. He spends his spare time humoring Tyler, contemplating new lawn equipment, and trying to find the perfect pair of New Balance as he completes his metamorphosis to becoming a Dad.
