KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers sometimes share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them in general. Megan Finnerty is the creator of the series.

Mike Chow is a photojournalist in Phoenix. In 1999, the Serbians had occupied Kosovo and many Albanian refugees came to the United States.

Chow had been covering the conflict in Kosovo as well as one refugee, named Naim Berisha, who ended up in Phoenix. After the war ended, Chow and his colleague, Chris Fiscus, accompanied Naim when he returned to Kosovo.

Mike Chow is a staff photojournalist at the Arizona Republic.

Join Arizona Storytellers for their next night of live storytelling on Oct. 26, 2015, at Skyline, the Rooftop Patio at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel.
