Austin King shares a story about getting 15 minutes of fame on HGTV and how he used that fame to help people.

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. 

Austin King’s home remodeling business has been doing well for several years.

One day, he was encouraged to reach out to HGTV to see if they would shoot one of their home remodels.

So on June 16, 2014, King used the company’s Instagram account to contact one of the network executives asking her to check out his website.

Austin King is the co-founder of Rafterhouse in Phoenix.

The next storytelling event is Nov. 28, 2016, at the Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix.
