Looking for a great spot to enjoy your lunch and bask in the sun?
Little Rock has a few awesome spots that have beautiful views. Here is a look at our list:
Pat Bradley will be launching his new sports morning radio show May 6 and his permanent co-host will be Clint Stoerner, a former Arkansas Razorbacks quarterback and Dallas Cowboys player, Arkansas Business has reported.
The show will air on KKSP-FM, 93.3 (Sports 93.3 The Source), of Little Rock.
Bradley, a former Arkansas Razorbacks basketball star, left KABZ-FM, 103.7 (The Buzz), of Little Rock in February after about six years with the station. Stoerner was a regular guest host on Bradley's KABZ show The Zone.
The show will air 6-9 a.m. on weekdays. The show's name hasn't been finalized.

Looking for some foodie fun this week?
Tomorrow (April 30), Eggshells Kitchen Co., 5501 Kavanaugh Blvd., Little Rock, is having two special events -- inside and outside the store.
In the store, you'll find a little canning going on. The Root Cafe will be on hand for the store's monthly hands-on cooking class and it's all about canning. There, you'll find that canning is not only a science, but a delicious art. Attendees will be able to can their very own goodies (strawberries might be on the list!) and take creations home.
A glass of wine will be served and attendees are welcome to bring their own drinks (wine, beer, gin and tonics) for sipping on while the guest chef teaches the secrets of canning. The class is from 6 - 8 p.m. and it is $50 per person. Register here.
Just outside from 4 - 7 p.m., Sam Hedges from the Arkansas Local Food Network (ALFN) will be available to help educate the public about the Little Rock Local Food Club, a project of the ALFN whose mission is to make local food convenient and accessible. They operate an online farmers’ market that makes local products from more than 30 small farms and artisans easily accessible. Members pick up their groceries at Christ Episcopal Church every Sunday and Monday.
Learn the ropes of the online market, ask questions and even make your first online purchase, all in one stop. He will also showcase a selection of the goods available from local vendors. For more information, click here.
Now, you have a chance to see it -- for free!
