When talking about the Emmy®-award winning show Arizona Illustrated, host Tom McNamara says “It’s a slice of life you won’t find anywhere else.”

McNamara, former KVOA anchor and 30-year broadcast journalist veteran, says being a part of the show is unlike anything he’s ever done. “It’s been so much fun to work with AZPM on this colorful and unique program. To see it become so successful has been really gratifying and I’m looking forward to the stories we’re going to tell in Season 2.”

Whether it’s learning how to harvest rain, meeting the police officer that brings Flags For the Flagless, or getting to know the former Hollywood stars living in our midst, Arizona Illustrated introduces viewers to the people who make Arizona unique. Each half-hour episode features mini-documentaries shot on location throughout Southern Arizona, and covers a wide variety of topics, everything from Southern Arizona’s history, to science and nature, to public affairs.

While September 6 marks the beginning of the program’s second season in its weekly format, Arizona Illustrated has been part of Southern Arizona for more than 30 years. The former Arizona Illustrated was re-tooled and re-launched as a weekly half-hour program in 2014 and viewers immediately responded, making it one of PBS 6’s most-watched programs.

Catch new episodes of Arizona Illustrated every Sunday at 6:30 p.m. on PBS 6, with an encore presentation Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. Go to azpm.org for the complete schedule and program highlights.
