About The Event

Honoring Survivors

The National Cancer Survivors Day of Little Rock is the result of numerous Arkansas services coming together to honor and celebrate cancer survivors and patients. Each year, NCSD falls on the first Sunday of June and is celebrated locally in communities across the country. In 2018, the Little Rock group has chosen the theme as "Braving the Weather: The Forecast Looks Bright." 

Emcee: Ed Buckner

 Chief Meteorologist Ed Buckner started at THV 11 in 1996. He anchors the 5:00, 6:00, 6:30 and 10:00 p.m. newscasts, Monday through Friday.

He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in communications from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, a Certificate of Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University, and has been awarded seals of approval from the National Weather Association and American Meteorological Society. On March 1, 1997, Ed became the first local meteorologist to ever use live radar to track a tornado live on Arkansas television. He has shared his experience of using Live View Radar to track tornadoes through presentations at various conferences and seminars throughout the United States
