Staff Writer

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Gov. Asa Hutchinson has named one of his senior advisers to serve as the next executive director of the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism.

Hutchinson announced Thursday that Kane Webb would serve as the agency's director. The Parks, Recreation and Travel Commission confirmed Hutchinson's recommendation in a vote Thursday morning.

Webb is a longtime journalist who joined the governor's administration shortly after Hutchinson was elected. He has worked as Hutchinson's senior adviser and served as a communications aide.

Webb replaces Richard Davies, who is retiring this year after serving 25 years as the agency's executive director.
