The History of Phoenix Television

Meet the authors whose book is funding scholarships at ASU.

Dr. John Craft, Ph.D., and Lisa Honebrink are here to talk about their book, “Phoenix Television.” Phoenix introduced television in 1949 when the new medium was still quite young and Phoenix station owners, management and talent contributed a great deal to the field of television, in news, children’s shows and more. A new book chronicles the colorful history of television in Phoenix, featuring some rare, historic photos. The authors are donating their royalties to fund scholarships for students at ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
