KEWI (690 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a local news, talk and sports format. Licensed to Benton, Arkansas, the station mainly programs local content for Saline County, along with the southern portion of the Little Rock metropolitan area. Currently owned by Saline River Media, the station carries mainly locally-originated content, along with the daily syndicated shows of Herman Cain and Dave Ramsey, and Yahoo Sports Radio and Dial Global sports programming. The station also carries network play-by-play for the Dallas Cowboys, St. Louis Cardinals, and Arkansas Razorbacks football, basketball and baseball, and local play-by-play for Benton High School.

Saline River Media has applied for an FM translator for KEWI on 103.5, to be built in the summer of 2013.
