PHOENIX – Despite the upcoming holidays, Arizona’s headlines haven’t missed a beat this week.

If you’ve been preparing for the holidays or even the new year, don’t worry, we’ll get you all caught up.

KTAR’s Arizona’s News Roundup podcast covers all the top stories in the state to keep you informed on your time.

This week, KTAR breaking news editor Taylor Kinnerup breaks down the biggest stories of the week:

– Two Arizona election contest lawsuits are in court this week. The podcast covers the timeline of the lawsuit from Republican candidate for governor Kari Lake, where it stands and how long it will be until a judge is expected to rule. It also takes a deeper look at Republican candidate for attorney general Abe Hamadeh’s case.

– Title 42 is safe… for now. The podcast breaks down all the twists and turns the asylum policy went through before its sudden save. Plus, a look at the border and the wall that will soon disappear and what could replace it.

– Could the Phoenix Suns and Mercury soon have a new majority owner? We tell you more about who the big buyer is and what some are saying about the possible purchase.

The podcast also looked ahead at what’s to come including when we’ll learn the fate of the statewide recount.

We want to hear from you.
