Cronkite News delivers important, impactful Arizona news on its own platforms and through news and sports organizations across the region. We have reporting bureaus in Phoenix, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles.

Cronkite News is a product of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. The program has full-time editors/professionals who work closely with student journalists to produce daily and enterprise news and sports content on TV, digital and social media platforms for Southwest audiences. They pitch story ideas, get assignments and report and produce multimedia stories on deadline under the direction of professional editors for Cronkite News and sports – all while meeting the expectations of this professional news organization.

Health stories are supported, in part, through a generous grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the nation’s largest philanthropy dedicated solely to health. The funding helped establish the Southwest Health Reporting Initiative, which provides health care news and information with a focus on Latino, Native American and Spanish-speaking border communities across the Southwest.

Sustainability stories are supported, in part, through a generous grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. CPB is a private, nonprofit corporation created by Congress in 1967 that is the steward of the federal government’s investment in public broadcasting. The funding established Elemental: Covering Sustainability, a multimedia collaboration between Cronkite News, Arizona PBS, KJZZ, KPCC, Rocky Mountain PBS and PBS SoCal.
