FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — The University of Arkansas’ Pryor Center received a piece of television history on Monday (June 12), as TV station WDAF in Kansas City, Mo., donated its first live TV camera.

The RCA equipment dates back to the early 1950s is in great condition and will be permanently housed at the Pryor Center at 1 Center St. in Fayetteville.

The donation was thanks to Ben Meade and Jane Hunt Meade.
