KURB (98.5 FM, "B-98.5") is an Adult Contemporary radio station in Little Rock, Arkansas. It is owned by Cumulus Media. KURB is the area's continual top performer for women listenership. The station repeatedly dominates the market for women listeners ages 25–54.
The station's current lineup includes The Morning Rush with Jeff Matthews and Lisa Fischer; middays with Randy Cain; and afternoon drive with Becky Rogers. Kevin Miller covers the morning traffic reports; John Payne covers the afternoon reports. The station is the market's Delilah station and airs her show each weeknight at 7pm and on Sunday nights.
The station also has a positive reputation in the community with its involvement with charitable organizations, most notably Arkansas Children's Hospital where more than $1.1 million has been raised through a very successful three-day radiothon in February of every year. The station won the "Ken Peterson Founder's Award for Station of the Year" in 2008 for its work with ACH. B98 was competing against stations in the U.S., the U.K. and Canada.
Personalities who have previously worked at KURB include Little Rock radio icon Craig O'Neill, who left the station in 2000 for a position in local television. He now anchors evening newscasts for Little Rock's CBS-TV affiliate, KTHV. Scott Thrower replaced O'Neill in mornings in 2000 and produced consistent #1 ratings for KURB in the female 25-54 demographic. Thrower left the station in 2006 after unproductive contract renewal negotiations. He has since left radio, after 33 years in the business, and is pursuing a second career as a registered nurse. Thrower's producer, Jason Harper, also left KURB for a local TV job. He now hosts a nationally syndicated television show on fishing.
