KAET's Monumental Arizona

About KAET/Channel 8

KAET, a part of Arizona State University, has been bringing viewers quality programming for more than 40 years. With more than 1.7 million people watching the station each week, KAET frequently ranks among the most-viewed public television stations per capita in the country. A trusted community resource, KAET enriches the lives of Arizonans through quality programs and educational services that inform, inspire and entertain.

More than 450,000 children tune in to our kids' programming each week. And from the couch to the classroom, our educational services reach beyond the television set. Through workshops and book distribution, KAET's "Ready to Learn" service has helped more than 13,000 children begin school ready to learn. This year more than 405,000 students were helped by KAET in partnership with ASSET (Arizona School Services through Educational Technology,) and 25,000 teachers utilized ASSET's resources. Our GED programs help adults get their high school diplomas, and many students earn college credits through Arizona State University telecourses.

In addition to airing programs distributed nationally by PBS, KAET produces its own award-winning programs. Especially noteworthy are HORIZON, an acclaimed nightly public affairs program, and the Arizona Collection, a continuing series of programs celebrating the people, places and history of Arizona. KAET's latest weekly series, HORIZONTE, offers a look at Arizona issues through a Hispanic lens.
Monumental Arizona is the newest addition to KAET's Arizona Collection, which also includes the Arizona Memories series, Ranch Album, Kolb Brothers: Grand Canyon Pioneers, and the Emmy Award-winning Barry Goldwater: Photographs & Memories, Thieves of Time, Images of Arizona, Southwest Symphony, Over Arizona and Legends & Dreamers: Inspired by Arizona Highways.

Monumental Arizona was made possible by the Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation and by the KAET Program Partners, Friends of Channel 8 who provide additional gifts for programs about the Arizona experience.
