Watch Arizona PBS’ 2022 Emmy-nominated programs

This August, Arizona PBS received 11 Emmy® nominations

from the Rocky Mountain Southwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and two of those nominees won!

As a public broadcaster, Arizona PBS exists as a public square: a space for conversation, education and civil discourse. We connect our audience to the world around them. Nominations like these affirm that as we serve our communities, we’re also creating programs that are among the best of our industry peers.

None of this great local content would be possible without the support of our viewers. Everything we create, any excellence we achieve, can be traced directly to your generous support of Arizona PBS.

Please enjoy the Emmy-nominated programs on this page, and consider supporting Arizona PBS to help make possible the programs that might be next year’s award recipients. Thank you for believing in us.

“Check, Please! Arizona”

“Check, Please! Arizona,” in which community members join Chef Mark Tarbell to chat about local restaurants they recommend to each other, is a four-time Emmy® Award-winner. Returning after a four-year hiatus, the show received a whopping five nominations.
