In the fall, the city of Phoenix announced it would be looking for the city’s first-ever poet laureate.

Phoenix’s leaders had set a goal of having the Poet in place in January, and on Wednesday, the decision was made public.

We spoke with Poet Laureate Rosemarie Dombrowski and Gail Browne, executive director for Phoenix’s Office of Arts and Culture.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
