Boas: The Legacy Of Karl Eller, Arizona Businessman And Philanthropist

Karl Eller
University of Arizona
Karl Eller and his wife, Stevie.

The Show regularly checks in with the Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about the big issues facing the state and the region — featured in the newspaper’s Viewpoints section.

Arizona businessman and philanthropist Karl Eller died on March 10 at the age of 90.

Eller was known for leading several companies — including Eller Media, Gannett and Circle K — and for leaving millions to the University of Arizona business school. He was born during the Great Depression but benefited from approaching capitalism with integrity.

Arizona Republic Editorial Director Phil Boas joined The Show for his weekly appearance to talk about Eller's legacy.

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