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


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!

Trying to craft the perfect question? Here are some tips for success:

  1. Be specific. Ask about one topic per submission and something that a single, in-depth investigation can uncover.

  2. Be open-ended. Questions that can be answered with a simple “yes” or “no” are less likely to lead to an interesting story.

  3. Be local. What are you wondering about that is unique to your neighborhood, the Phoenix area or Arizona?

  4. Be curious. Ask questions that inspire discussion and shed light on meaningful issues, whether cultural, historic, scientific, or related to current events or policies.
