ALL ABOUT "POSITIVELY ARIZONA"
Arizona is mostly associated with The Grand Canyon, the Saguaro Cactus, extreme summer temperatures, vast deserts and the seemingly endless number of golf courses. But what really sets Arizona apart is its people.
Positively Arizona is a one-and-a-half minute feature that focuses on both the "ordinary" and "extraordinary" people that make Arizona unique. These Arizonans are special because they are creating a positive impact on our daily lives, and in some cases, with no expected return for their efforts.
They are men and women, business owners, politicians, philanthropists, and personalities whose actions and work have helped shape Arizona, or simply, have brought smiles to those whose lives they've touched. AZTV's mission is to highlight these unique individuals, or groups, as a way to honor their good deeds, inspire others, and to celebrate what makes Arizona the best place to live.
These features will be aired throughout the week on AZTV and MeTV in various programs as part of our broadcast schedule.
Watch, listen and learn what makes these people Positively Arizona.
