With an important election year underway, Arizona PBS will be doing its part throughout 2024 to ensure citizens across the state are able to make informed decisions as ballots are cast statewide.

Critical to these efforts is the station’s longest-running series, “Arizona Horizon,” covering news, Arizona politics, and public affairs. Although “Arizona Horizon” is now in its fourth decade, the man that has shaped that program for much of the last two decades is Ted Simons, the show’s managing editor and host.

Watch “Arizona Horizon” weeknights at 5 p.m. on air or on our YouTube news channel, AZPBS Now, or catch full episodes online later or on the PBS app.
