Rich History, Brighter Future.Arizona’s first television station and one formed by a former Arizona Governor who co-authored the GI Bill are not the only claims to fame for the stations that make up Arizona’s Family. From the beloved CBS 5’s children’s program, The Wallace and Ladmo Show, to 3TV’s ever-popular Good Morning Arizona, Arizonan’s Family’s programs have been a part of the valley’s culture for decades. In 2016, CBS 5’s Morgan Loew was awarded the Edward R Murrow award, the highest in journalism for his coverage of abandoned mine pollution in Arizona. His grit and ruthless pursuit of righting wrongs, still helps set CBS 5’s brand apart in the marketplace.

Good Morning Arizona has been the fan-favorite morning experience that’s dominated the morning landscape for more than 2 decades.
And when Arizonans have a problem, they count on ‘3 On Your Side’ to help them get answers and solutions. Gary Harper and the ’3 On Your Side’ team aren’t afraid to ask the tough questions to get justice for Arizonans who have been wronged.
