Mark Carter has been named the new editor for Arkansas Money & Politics, the monthly business and political magazine based in Little Rock.

Carter has worked in print journalism and corporate communications in Arkansas for 30 years. He will edit Arkansas Money & Politics and serve as a contributing editor for other niche publications owned by Vowell Inc. including AY, the state’s premier lifestyle magazine.

“Mark is a consummate professional and is eager to bring our stories to life,” said Publisher Heather Baker. “He will contribute to the execution of both AY and AMP as we continue to expand our footprint across the state.”

Arkansas Money & Politics recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of its relaunch as a print publication, and Baker said more growth is on the way.

“We’re proud to leap into our second year of print,” she said. “As we continue to tell the story behind the story in Arkansas business, we’re thrilled to showcase our growth. Responding to overwhelming feedback for a print version of AMP, our team is growing to accommodate demand from business leaders to cover the stories that matter to our state.”
