A Phoenix-based mattress industry disruptor is merging with a long-running powerhouse competitor.

Tuft & Needle will combine with Serta Simmons Bedding to form SSB. Tuft and Needle co-founder JT Marino says the new company will affect the industry in a dramatic way.

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