FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WKNO Television Series The Best Times Returns as Weekly Show
WKNO is proud to announce the return of the local television series The Best Times, a half-hour magazine-style series featuring segments on health, finance, technology, lifestyles, and more tailored specifically for WKNO’s viewers aged 50+. The Best Times returns on Thursday, September 20 at 7:30 p.m. on WKNO/Channel 10 as a weekly series.
Produced and hosted by Cris Hardaway, The Best Times not only delivers valuable information but also includes interviews and advice from professionals in many different fields. The premiere episode will feature medical tourism, Jackie Nichols – executive producer at Playhouse on the Square – and more.
The weekly series The Best Times is made possible from the generous financial support of our production funders: H.W. Durham Foundation, Trezevant Retirement Community and the monthly publication of the same name The Best Times.
“The Best Times is about something we’re all doing – getting older,” said Hardaway. “It addresses the challenges and opportunities that the 21st century presents to the fast-growing 50+ population segment. The show and its community outreach will inform, enlighten and entertain in an effort to make the next chapter of our lives the best times.”
“We are very excited to partner with WKNO on this series”, said Lester Gingold, publisher of The Best Times publication. “This is an important, influential segment of the population and there’s simply not enough information out there to help us navigate new phases in our lives.”
The Best Times will air Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. beginning September 20 on WKNO/Channel 10. It also airs Saturdays at 2:30 p.m. beginning September 22 on WKNO2 (available over the air on Channel 10.2 and on Comcast Channel 910).
WKNO is a non-profit, private foundation serving the Mid-South for more than 56 years. An important community resource, WKNO uses the power of non-commercial public broadcasting to provide the Mid-South with quality educational and cultural programs that inform, entertain, and inspire.
