I’m a rail fan, especially when it comes to railroad history in Arkansas. I’ve been working for decades to document the history of the long-gone Rock Island Railroad, but also occasionally get out to photograph existing railroads, especially Union Pacific and Amtrak’s passenger trains. After maintaining a website since 2002, In March 2017 I began completely rebuilding my site from scratch on a more modern platform. This is where I’ll add some of my older material in the coming months. For now, this section of my website is rather bare-bones!
Welcome to the online home and archive of Michael Hibblen. For nearly 30 years I've been working in broadcasting and news. Today I'm news director of NPR station KUAR in Little Rock, Arkansas. This site tells my story and random interests, including audio of some stories I've covered, photos, videos and PDF files of newspaper stories.
