LITTLE ROCK – This year’s Arkansas Rice Expo has an all-star lineup of judges who
will put their palates to the test for the Rice Recipe Contest.
This year’s judges, in alphabetical order:
MEREDITH MITCHELL, KTHV-TV -- Meredith Mitchell is a hometown girl, a Little Rock native who came back to
THV 11 in May of 2007 as weekend weather anchor and weather reporter.
The Little Rock Central High School grad first came to THV 11 as an intern while attending
the University of Arkansas. After graduation, she began her broadcasting career in
Joplin, Missouri, as weekend weather anchor and reporter for KSNF-TV. Meredith's interest
in meteorology began at a young age, studying and researching the effects weather
has on our daily lives.
Meredith is a die-hard Razorback fan and enjoys watching all Razorback sports.
STEPHANIE FISCHER PRISLOVSKY, Stuttgart Daily Leader – Stephanie Fischer Prislovsky is spending her final day as editor of the Stuttgart
Daily Leader and GateHouse Media’s regional desk as a contest judge. Born and raised
in Stuttgart, she grew up on a farm just south of own where her grandfather, father
and brother still farm about 1,300 acres. The Arkansas State graduate worked media
relations for the athletic departments at ASU and Notre Dame before working at the
Conway Log Cabin Democrat. In June, Stephanie married Sam Prislovsky, who, with his
father, farms about 2,000 acres in Prairie and Arkansas counties.
“Rice is by far one of my favorite foods, and I would probably eat it four or five
times a week if I could!” she said.
STEVE SHULER, Sync Magazine -- Steve Shuler is a food critic with Sync Magazine and the host of the Little Rock
Foodcast, a podcast discussing food and drink in the Little Rock area. An avid food
lover, Steve has spent years studying Southern recipes and food culture, particularly
barbecue. When he’s not eating or writing about food, Steve works as a video producer
and writer for AFMC, a Little Rock health care organization. Steve lives in Little
Rock with his wife and daughter.
