Jonathan Rice

KQED co-founder Jonathan Rice
1916 - 2001

"In 1954, my dream for providing a special public service for our community was realized - Channel 9 went on the air, providing public television for the San Francisco Bay Area.

KQED FM became a reality in 1969. Almost 50 years later, KQED is the nation's most-watched public broadcaster in prime time. Over the years, we have come to rely on KQED's innovative programming - it inspires, enlightens, and informs us.

As co-founder of KQED, I still care about its present, still dream of its future. My vision is that KQED will continue to serve the community, providing quality programming to enrich the lives of future generations - our children and grandchildren. I hope you will join me in fulfilling this dream by making a legacy gift to KQED." (Jonathan Rice at the founding of the Legacy Society in 1997)
