Sponsorship grants to Friends of Public Radio Arizona from American Traffic Solutions and Alliance Bank of Arizona also played a crucial role in funding business, science and innovation reporting at KJZZ.

Specialized coverage will include targeted story segments airing on KJZZ's Original Productions including The Show with Hosts Mark Brodie and Steve Goldstein on Thursdays and Fridays at 2 p.m.and KJZZ's Here and Now with Steve Goldstein Wednesdays at 11 a.m.
