Mark Brodie PhotoKJZZ listeners know they can trust Government and Politics Reporter and Weekend Edition Saturday Host Mark Brodie for intelligent reports and insightful perspectives on Arizona politics and public policy.

Mark covers all levels of government, including cities, counties, the state legislature, Governor’s office and federal government. He works to bring KJZZ listeners different perspectives on bills and issues of interest to them.

On primary and election nights, Mark anchors KJZZ’s coverage, interviewing candidates, reporters and people on all sides of ballot measures.

Covering government and politics in Arizona has led Brodie to report on the legislative and legal battles over immigration law SB 1070, the recall election of former Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce and Presidential visits, among many other stories.

Brodie’s reporting on Arizona government and politics has been featured on national programs, including All Things Considered and Marketplace. He’s also been heard on radio programs in Arizona, Los Angeles and elsewhere, and is a regular guest on Arizona Horizon, a public-affairs show on Eight, Arizona PBS.

While Brodie spends most of his time covering the state capitol, other aspects of politics and government in Arizona, he also reports non-political stories.  Brodie also serves as an emcee and moderator for special station events and community forums.

Brodie won a 2005 Associated Press award for a story about real estate flipping and shared in a 2003 Public Radio News Directors Inc. award with Steve Goldstein for a story about ticket scalping at Arizona Cardinals games. The New York State Broadcasters Association, RTNDA, and other journalism organizations have recognized his work as well.

Brodie began his tenure with KJZZ in 2002, after reporting and hosting for NPR member stations WAER in Syracuse, NY and WAMC in Albany, NY.  He received his Broadcast Journalism and Political Science degrees from Syracuse University.

In his free time, Brodie enjoys photography. He’s also a big fan of the New York Yankees, New York Giants, and the late, great Hartford Whalers.
