You’ve got questions, we’ve got reporters.

Q&AZ

Whether you were born in Arizona or came here from somewhere else, chances are you’ve wondered about the people, places and things in the Grand Canyon State.

We think great stories start with curious questions, and KJZZ wants to investigate your questions — big or small — from the Valley or across the state.

Submit a question below. Please note: We won't be able to answer every question, but we will answer as many as we can and also have voting rounds periodically for you to determine which questions we should focus on next!

For questions about programming, membership or anything else about KJZZ, please visit kjzz.org/contact.

Questions our reporters have answered:

They adorn hills, mountains and buttes across Arizona. But what’s the deal with those big, white letters on peaks in dozens of Arizona cities and towns? Through our Q&AZ reporting project, a listener asked where the custom came from. It dates back more than 100 years, to a hill in Northern California.

Arizona is known as the Copper State. One listener wanted to know where all of that copper came from. It turns out it all started with a bang.

The city of Phoenix got its name for rising on the ashes of the ancient Hohokam civilization. As part of our Q&Az program, a listener asked how other Valley cities - specifically Tempe - got their names.
