Greg Moore shares his story at the "Stories About Stories" event at the Phoenix Art Museum on July 17, 2018.

KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them. 


In 2009, Greg Moore was working at the Kansas City Star.

He had been following the story of the disputed 2007 Kenyan elections for a few years, so when Moore was asked to travel to Kenya for a reporting fellowship, he jumped at the opportunity.

He would be helping the local newspaper with writing and editing as the country transitioned to a time of peace. Moore arrived in Nairobi and he quickly learned that English in Kenya is not the same as English in the United States.

Moore is a sports columnist at the Arizona Republic.

The next storytelling event is July 18, 2019, at The Van Buren in Phoenix. To learn more about the Arizona Storytellers project or how to tell your own story, visit storytellersproject.com.
