Without our donors, there would be no KJZZ! Big-hearted people of all types lead the community through their generosity for public service journalism they value and trust. Here is why they feel so passionate about KJZZ:
"The public recognition of our support for something that really matters to me -- honest, unbiased, trustworthy news -- along with intelligent talk radio, and great entertainment has made supporting KJZZ the easiest decision I make each year."
“KJZZ is important to me. I read very quickly, too quickly, sometimes, to fully absorb what I’m reading, so listening to someone tell me the news is perfect for me. I love that I can learn what is going on in the world while I’m driving or working at home. I use the stories I hear, especially about scientific studies, as illustrations in my classes at ASU. Sometimes the stories are so interesting I have to sit in my hot car to hear the end. I need a remote control so I can turn on the living room radio from my car and dash inside without missing anything.”
Ms. Mary Westheimer and Mr. Kevin Caron
"When we want news, KJZZ is our first choice for unbiased, in-depth information. Our dial is always turned to KJZZ in the car, too, for wonderful entertainment like This American Life, RadioLab, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!, and Ask Me Another. The number of programs we enjoy is really too long to list here—we are grateful for the many, many ways KJZZ contributes to our lives."
Mrs. Mac Perlich
“Since moving to Phoenix ten years ago, my home stereo and car radio button have loyally remained on KJZZ. The reason for this permanence is simple; I value the consistent quality of the content of the broadcast, be it local, national or international. I know that at the end of the segment, I will be smarter, better informed and richer in my depth and breadth of understanding this complicated place we all call home. I seek self-improvement; KJZZ helps me get there on a daily basis. Thank you!”
Ms. Katie Pushor
“I listen to KJZZ because of the balanced reporting and the diversity of topics. I am curious about our community, and the world, and I want to learn from people and opinions that are different than my own. It keeps me fresh. I contribute because I receive so much in return, and because I want to be part of the community that KJZZ brings together. Let's keep listening to one another!”
Mr. and Mrs. Norman Cocanour
“KJZZ is all we listen to for reliable and accurate news all the time.”
Mr. Thomas and Mrs. Zona Lorig
“KJZZ is our 'go-to' source for news, information and entertainment; it is a significant contributor to our life-long learning. We appreciate the balance and in-depth reporting of local, national and world events and stories. The commercial-free programming delivered in a calm, reasoned, factual manner is very important to us. While we rarely miss Morning Edition or Scott Simon, KJZZ is always our first option when turning on the radio (which we do a lot!) anytime, day or night.”
